Tips for Work Fewer Hours  Earn More Money Infographic
SMPP Software ProviderDo you know people who claim to work 80 hours a week? They’re almost certainly lying — or exaggerating — or just deluded. Back in 2011, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) produced a report called, The Overestimated Workweek Revisited (pdf). It found that people tend to overstate how many hours they actually work by between 5-10 percent. But the really interesting result was that the more hours people claim, the bigger the error. So people who claim to work over 75 hours per week overestimate on average by a whopping 33 percent! Interestingly, people log less than 24 hours per week tend to underestimate how many hours they work. Part of this can be explained by the fact that people often include things like their long commutes. But the BLS believes that one of the important reasons for this tendency to exaggerate is “social desirability”: working a lot is seen as a good thing. Not working is seen as indicating laziness or irresponsibility. This is all quite understandable.

What is an Infographic?

Information graphics or infographics are graphic (realistic) visual representations of data, information or knowledge intended to present information clearly and quickly. They can enhance discernment by using illustrations to upgrade the human visual framework's capacity to see examples and patterns. Infographics have advanced as of late to be for mass correspondence, and in this manner are composed with less suppositions about the perusers information base than different sorts of perceptions.
