You waste a lot of time at work!

Just because you’re at work, doesn’t mean you’re actually getting work done. We all know how hard it is to concentrate when your email constantly pops up and demands attention or you’re stuck in pointless meetings. What if we actually monetized how much the economy loses to avoidable distractions on the clock? It would add up to the billions.
