Have you ever thought about how much time we spend waiting?
After waiting on the phone for thirty-five minutes for a representative to help me with a billing issue, I was at my wit’s end. By the time I was able to talk to a person, I must admit my fuse was short. My frustration reminded me of how we are all continually waiting for something or someone. I decided to do a little research to see how much time we spend waiting, and I am shocked.
Did you know the average person spends 43 days of their life on hold? Talk about depressing! But wait, there is more!
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in this study, the average person spends 10 years of waiting in line.
These statistics made me think about the value of time. How much time do we spend endlessly waiting for life to happen to us?
