It’s true, on average I still have a 37 hour week.
Having worked at IBM for over 30 years I have a compulsion to complete a weekly time sheet.
But I don’t just record the time I spend working on customer projects.
Since the start of 2011 I have recorded my activity for 12 hours of each day, 7 days a week. That’s 84 hours out of 168.
I fed all the figures for 2011 into my computer (I actually wrote some WordPress plugins rather than use a spreadsheet) and lo and behold it turns out that even though I can now mess about in the garden, traipse off to the pub or golf or just watch TV I still work a 37 hour week.
But over half my life is still unaccounted for!

And before you ask, my plugin is NOT called Claim.
