Did you know that you spend 45% or more of your waking hours at work?
Here’s a quick breakdown:
- 168 = The number of hours in a given week (24 hours x 7 days = 168)
- 56 = The number of hours we sleep (assuming we sleep an average 8 hours each a night)
- 112 = The number of hours we are awake each week (168 – 56 = 112)
- 50 = The number of hours you are at work (assuming a 40-hour week), driving to and from work (assuming one hour a day), and getting ready for work (one hour per day)
- 50 / 112 = 45%!!
And that doesn’t include the hours we spend thinking about work when we are with our friends and families (not a good thing)!
45% is a big number.
45% means we spend a large percentage of lives at work.
45% is one of the reasons that at notthebigcompany, we believe that work should be MEANINGFUL. At PCI, we want to make a difference in the lives of others with the work we do. It is a key driver that helps define what we mean by notthebigcompany.
