So, what it the true cost of disorganization? Why does organization matter?
73% of managers and associates say they form impressions of co-workers by the way their desks are organized.
Nearly 70% of workers believe that colleagues with messy desks are less career driven than their counterparts. Can you afford to allow that perception in this climate of downsizing and forced sabbaticals?
Office distractions eat up 2.1 hours per day for the average worker. How much more could you produce if you had 2 extra focused hours of work each day?
Once interrupted, it takes 25 minutes to get back into the flow of the original task. Although many think you will get more done by multitasking, you are actually less effective than when concentrating on one thing before switching to another.
If distractions eat up an average of 2.1 hours per day, that adds up to over 12 weeks per year. If you were organized, not only would you produce more, but you have extra time to pursue your personal goals and meet family commitments.
Distracted drivers who are multitasking cause 80% of crashes and 65% of near-crashes.
Stress builds up with disorganization. 80% of our medical expenditures are now stress-related.
