Breaking down your day can be an eye-opening experience for instance: according to the U.S. census bureau the average American spends more than 100 hours commuting to work each year. If you correlate this statistic with another you’ll be shocked. The average American accumulates 80 hours of vacation time each year. We spend more time commuting than we do earning vacation days. The average American, 12 years old or older, watches 4.7 hours of television per day or 1,704 hours per year.
I’m not suggesting quitting your job and working from home, but it’s not a bad idea to look for a career you can enjoy from your house. Will you really miss the daily commute? And how can watching nearly five hours of television be productive or fulfilling? Taking some time and trim the needless fat from your day. It will give you time for other personal and family endeavors.
