It occurred to me the other day that video game characters run everywhere. I remember being chided by Lara Croft about that once. On the other hand it’s amazing how much time we waste each year doing routine tasks.
I read an article this morning about the time you could be wasting stuck in traffic. It got me thinking about the numbers. I work about 240 days of the year. So every minute I spend in a routine daily task comes to 4 hours per year. I spend about 10 minutes walking to work and 10 minutes walking back. That’s the equivalent of working an extra 10 days a year. One more selling point for teleworking – if the environmental arguments don’t yet have you convinced.
