BOSTON ( MainStreet) -- You know what you're going to do for New Year's, right? Where you'll be at midnight, who you'll be kissing or how you plan to get to that point, what you'll be drinking and where, maybe what you'll be watching, even how you'll be pursuing the traditional resolutions once New Year's Day is history.But between now and that moment is likely a blur -- always has been, always will be -- a wasted week in which people bide time between the Christmas and New Year's holidays. A poll by flexible-workspace expert Regus showed that 39% of business respondents expect little to be accomplished during the week, and that 58% thought staff would be using the time just to catch up on unfinished tasks. And that's according to 3,000 U.S. workers from among 12,000 business people surveyed in 85 countries.
