Governments, managers, advisors and consultants think like this.
George spends on average one and a half minutes a day putting on and taking off shoes and other footwear.
Over a year this amounts to nine hours, seven and a half minutes. That’s without allowing for the extra one and a half minutes in a leap year. So add on a third of that one and a half and in the average year, the time used up is nine hours, eight minutes. That’s without considering time taken in maintenance activities such as cleaning shoes and clipping toenails.
Recommendation: cut one leg off, saving four hours, thirty-four minutes minimum.
