Getting Back To Work: A Personal Productivity Toolkit || kuro5hin.org

This is a really intersting and insightful article about procrastination and tools and habits that might make it better. Not a scientific study by any means, but a good primer and analysis of some practical thinking points about work and pleasure.

Interesting quote (no citation given):
Studies have shown that the average office worker does only 1.5 hours of actual work per day. The rest of the time is spent socializing, taking coffee breaks, eating, engaging in non-business communication, shuffling papers, and doing lots of other non-work tasks. The average full-time office worker doesn't even start doing real work until 11:00 am and begins to wind down around 3:30 pm.

I wonder if that's really true?

An interesting thing that I note after I read this is that the multi-tabbed interface in FireFox has increased my "go to the web" distraction time - although my increased usage of this tool has coincided with my increased usage of RSS technologies, which are a great distractor, so I'm not confident of a specific causality.

Anyway - quite an interesting read, and indicative of the best level of quality from kur0shin.
