Most people feel like they work a lot of hours at their jobs and some recent research is backing that up. A 2015 CNN survey showed that Americans working full-time clocked in an average 47 hours per week. That weekly average is one of the highest in the world.
Logging in all these hours makes balancing work and life challenging. And spending extra time at work doesn’t necessarily translate into success.
The key to being a successful person is not working more but rather working less hours and making the most of every hour worked. When we work each hour productively and efficiently, we redesign our work and create time for family & friends, community, and other life priorities.
