the good life in a digital age

organising in the New York Times

I won’t make you guess which camp I’m in!

“The workplace is divided into two camps: those who have a place for everything and the rest of us, who waste time — up to six weeks a year — looking for files, letters and other detritus.

In a recent survey of 200 executives of 1,000 of the nation’s largest companies, respondents were asked: “What percent of time do executives waste because they or their assistants can’t find things?” The median response was 4.3 hours a week, based on a 40-hour week.”
