Reasons People Don’t Get the Job Done at the Office!

Working hours are supposedly set to eight hours a day (usually from 8 a.m to 5 p.m) except surprisingly people don’t get their jobs done during office hours! Time gets wasted here and there and all of a sudden the day has vanished and none of the work has been finished.

The day starts off by the morning greeting with a cup of coffee plus perhaps some breakfast and a little bit after that it’s time for lunch. You get to attend meetings and be interrupted by managers or colleagues. Maybe someone asked for your help in your area of expertise so you got to help. Oh wait, you will have to attend that four hour training for public speaking or professional e-mail writing! Still, the work is expected to be done which none of it has be been done and all the time has been gone.

So, you stay up late at work, take work back home and even come on the weekends because sometimes you just need the extra equipment and the due date isn’t getting any further away.

Jason Fried, in one of the TED Talks, explains why work doesn't happen at work and has a very interesting analogy that relates working to sleeping in its need to be interruption free.
