Wasting Time Getting Caffeine

Ask yourself the following questions to find out if you may be wasting time getting your daily fix of caffeine each morning:

Are you one of the 52% of Americans over the age of eighteen that drink coffee every morning

Are you drinking coffee each morning because you “need” it to increase your productivity

Do you spend time each morning ordering your caffeine fix from the local coffee shop down the block?

Have you ever thought about making coffee at home in the morning but then decided it would be easier or quicker to get it ready-made from a coffee shop instead?

Have you ever remarked to a co-worker that you didn’t get your coffee that morning and will be more productive once you get a cup?

If you answered YES to any of these questions then you should keep reading.  According to an online article about Coffee Facts and Statistics, “Coffee drinkers that get a cup to go from a local coffeehouse before work will wait in line nearly forty-five hours each year!” Whoa, that is ALOT of time.  That is nearly one hour each week that you may be spending in line and waiting “to be productive”!

Instead of standing in line and wasting all that time each day, try using a coffee maker at your home or office.  To ensure you are not wasting valuable time that I know you could use for better things, make sure the coffee maker you have includes a timer and delayed start option.  Whether you are planning to drink coffee at home or at the office, take just 2 minutes at the end of your day (while you still have energy flowing) to prepare the coffee maker for the following morning.  Then set the timer and delayed start option for the specific time you’d like to have your caffeine fix the next day.

Once you start having coffee waiting for you at the time you set, you’ll start saving time and gain productivity easily.  Try it tomorrow morning and see if it helps you save time!
