Time at Work: Wasted

Office Space

There are plenty of people out there who believe that their work a waste of time. That’s not even taking into account the amount of non-work that goes into play at the office. If we really look closely at our daily activities, we’ll probably find that we could be a heck of a lot more efficient with our activities.

In this older-but-still-relevant infographic from Atlassian Blogs, we take a look at those things that are, well, holding us back and keeping us from actually getting all of our work done. We encourage you to click through to the post itself as they have done a great job at making this an interactive infographic.

Here’s a very small taste:

What Blogging Means for Your Business

Blogger

Blogging gets hot in business, then cold, then hot again, then cold again. It rises and dies, and rises again. Depending on which guru you’re listening to and on what day you’re listening to them, your business may absolutely need a blog or it may be wasting its time blogging.

The truth (okay, it’s an opinion, but still) is that blogging can be one of the most powerful social media tools a company can use to promote their business when done right. If done wrong, it can be a waste of time.

This infographic gives a little bit of information that is useful but definitely highlights some of the starting points for those businesses that want to consider getting into or expanding their blogging strategy. Again, it’s a tool. Blogging by itself is hard to make work, but combined with a proper search and social strategy, it can be an excellent way to make your business stand out.

App Creation Tools that don’t Suck

Apps

There’s very little doubt that mobile is taking over the world and apps are taking over mobile. If anything, there are way too many apps out there, much more than a person could browse if that’s all they did from the moment they woke up until they went to bed with their eyes bleeding. As a result, the app world is clearly a very competitive one.

Marketing an app is the key to getting exposure, but you have to build one first that doesn’t suck. The best marketing and the biggest budgets in the world cannot overcome the negatives of a bad app, which is why app tools are extremely important. In this infographic by ASO Professional, they look at some of the best app tools on the marketing.

Visualizing the Sheer Size of the Big Rig Industry

Trucks drive the United States. That’s not a bad pun. It’s a fact. The trucking industry is absolutely huge and represents a portion of our infrastructure that, if suddenly removed, would set the nation back 100 years.

Almost every physical product we buy spent a portion of time on a big rig at some point. With over 3.5 million truckers in America, it’s the type of industry that has a lot of weight while wielding its power in a fashion that is practically unnoticed by everyone. They influence product pricing. They influence gas pricing. They influence politicians who need interstate transit as a way of helping to boost their local economies.

They need trucks. We need trucks. Thankfully, they are one of the least corrupt power forces in the nation (which is exactly why we rarely hear about them in the news).

This infographic examines the sheer size of the industry. Click to enlarge.
