4 Hour Work Day

NO- I did not get it wrong, I know it’s 4 hour work week, however, I am not looking for a 4 hour work week. This summer I wanted a 4 hour work day. Instead of being down on myself for wanting to enjoy the long days, I decided to increase my efficiency and then just take the rest of the time off. Now, you never know WHICH 4 hours of the day it will be. That’s my choice as a business owner. But I am free of guilt for slacking off or day dreaming while watching the butterflies in the office garden.

I am using a strategy I learned from Dave Lakhani – work for 50 min and then take a 10 min break. I Modified it to work for 20 and take a break  and I also use the action machine to time myself.

I will push to 6 hour work day if I have a busy day. I am not wasting time and I have time to do things at home like- clean out my book case!. I am not done yet, I have more book cases to go. These are the first batch of books donated – 2 full boxes and 4 bags and an old clothes basket, all full of books.

I also sold a few to Amazon on their trade in program that netted me $50!

Getting ride of clutter feels good, the books are good, I hope they bless the new readers and life is good.

I will update you on this 4 hour work day thing and see if I can take it until the end of the year!

Did you make any changes in how you work? Post below, I love to hear new ideas.

  1. I took half of last Friday off to take my son and a friend to the beach. Felt totally guilty at first, but had fun. Thanks for sharing in this post.
