I wish employees would stare out of the window or look at cat videos more often. Because in many cases that would improve productivity. By sending emails to people who are not concerned you create work for the company, not actually work yourself. By inviting people to meetings you take them away from something that might be more urgent. By sending emails chat style instead of thinking them through and putting all your questions in one email you create more work for other people.
At least when you are staring out of the window vacantly nobody else has to stop their work. You gain focus and might make more sense and thus prevent useless follow-up. So be mindful who you involve in what. And don’t get caught with the cat videos.
