Email processing costs ~$1 a pop

A few titbits caught my eye in an interesting little article in the Economist about the perils of over collaborating:

  • Processing emails costs about 95 cents in labor costs. Something to think about when sending email (and cc’ing people!)
  • Knowledge works spent ~70-85% of their time doing non-deep thinking – i.e. attending meetings, processing email, on the phone etc. Wow.

The ability to focus is going to be a critical differentiating skill going forward.
