Here's an interesting .
I'm going to pick out a few of their facts and comment on them.
70% of American workers experience stress-related illnesses.
I can relate to this.
I never knew what a toll stress was taking on my body until I retired. I could literally feel the stress melting away over time. It took about six months for me to fully de-stress after working almost 30 years.
Of course, too much stress is not good for any of us. In this way, our jobs are slowly killing us every day.
33% more heart attacks occur on Monday mornings.
Uh, yeah. Because 1) people hate their jobs and 2) there's a lot of stress there. No surprise here.
In retirement, Monday becomes your favorite day. Why? Because everyone else goes back to work. The stores are quieter, the gym is quieter, the theater is quieter, and so on.
The average commute time is 47 minutes round trip.
That is BRUTAL!
Most people don't factor the physical (more stress!) and monetary (like ) impact of a long commute.
Think about it this way: 47 minutes per day * 5 days per week * 50 weeks = 11,750 minutes or 196 hours or 8.2 days per year commuting. Ugh.
I never had a commute more than 20 minutes one way and if I had I would have probably hated it completely.
41% of tasks on to-do lists never get completed.
What a shock here...not really.
Most people are so busy getting to the urgent things each day that they don't get to the important things.
There's a reason Covey addressed this in his 7 Habits book.
