Is Procrastination Killing You and Your Company? Author Offers Proven Distraction Busters
CNBC.com | March 19, 2012 | 10:42 AM EDT

GUEST AUTHOR BLOG: "The hidden form of procrastination that plagues CEOs, and ruins companies" by Rory Vaden author of "Take the Stairs: 7 Steps to Achieving True Success."

Procrastination is the most expensive invisible cost in business today. A recent study of 10,000 U.S. employees polled, revealed that the average worker self-admitted to wasting 2.09 hours each day on non-job-related activities. Considering the average salaried employee makes $39,795, that means procrastination costs employers $10,396 per year – per employee.

If you’re a high-level executive or business owner, that number probably horrifies you. And it should.

But, let me ask you this: How much is your own procrastination costing you?
