Clean your desk ASAP
When I opened my email this morning, I had Joe Groden's June newsletter waiting for me. A lot of you probably know Joe. He's an industry consultant and speaks at a lot of events. He'll be at VGM's Heartland conference in Waterloo, Iowa next week--as will I. It's a great event.
Anyways, I don't think Joe knows this, but I'm a sucker for numerical facts and statistics. With that in mind, I'm going to share with you a few snippets from Joe's newsletter.
• About 20% of the average workday is spent on crucial and important things while 80% of the average workday is spent on things that have little or no value. Even increasing by 10% the important time can lead to a more productive staff (and management)

• A person who works with a messy or cluttered desk spends on average an hour a day looking for or being distracted by things. That is five hours a week that could be gained.
• We retain 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear, 30% of what we see. Then we retain 50% of what we both hear and see and retain 90% of what we do.
I don't know about you, but I'm going to add "clean your desk" to my to-do list.
