Work only six hours a day instead of eight or nine, and DON’T take a pay cut. Sounds awesome, right? Apparently not.
The results of a massive 10 year study says that cutting employees work hours has no affect on their overall satisfaction with their life or their jobs, and its because despite the fact you’re working less the actual workload doesn’t decrease. So now instead of having eight hours to stretch out your workload, you’re cramming it into 6 and THAT seems to be stressing people out enough that they can’t enjoy the 2 free hours they’ve loosened up every day.
Are you kidding? A ten year study to determine THIS?! Here’s my advice to all of you stressed out folk who fall into this category. TRY HARDER. Any “free time” that gets rotated back to you needs to cherished, coveted and include at least one good cocktail. They’re supposed to be “Happy Hours,” right?
