How long does it take you to empty your desk Inbox that is if you do at all?

You can empty your Inbox in fewer than five minutes when you stand and use a system versus spending an average of 20-30 minutes when sitting down.

When you sit, your tendency is to want to read or work on what is in your Inbox—exactly what you don’t want to be doing then. Your goal is to simply decide and move it to where it needs to go.

The same is true when making phone calls or attending a meeting. How long do you think meetings would last if everyone was standing?
