Recently I came across this webpage: How Much Is “The Way We’ve Always Done It” Costing You?. In this page, there is a cost calculator to determine how much time and money you and your team waste on inconsistent processes, status meetings, and tedious, manual work.
You may access the cost calculator here: https://www.smartsheet.com/status-quo-cost-calculator
Immediately, I keyed in the information to the best of my knowledge and was so amazed to see the time I spent in each of those areas: work processes, status meetings, manual work.

Have you ever sent out an email accidentally and unable to undo it? The good news is, you can change the setting to delay the email sending even you clicked the send button.
