most of the time you’re 99% idle February 11, 2009

Posted by That Guy in Seen Elsewhere.

I’m convinced that most people only spend 1-2 hours a day actually working. Of that time spent, a lot of it is “meta work”, endless emails, scheduling, and such. When you go to work and sit in your cube you’re behaving pretty much like a CPU. Most of the time you’re at 99% idle, but you need to be there and “on” just in case someone needs some processing done.

-Nathan Bowers

Sounds about right to me.

You just described my entire professional existence. Except my idle time is higher and actual processing time lower.
