We all know (and hate) busywork and what it represents - a waste of time, spent on repetitive, boring, soul-crushing tasks that in no way challenge or motivate us. According to HBR’s survey - 65% of senior managers feel that meetings keep them from completing their own work, while another claims that workers waste hundreds of hours every year in unproductive meetings.
Such work is necessary, but it doesn’t have to be time-consuming, and a lot of it can be automated and better planned out in advance.
Emails, meetings, deadlines - these are not the problem. The problems arise from not having a proper work methodology in place.
