The Beer Prayer - Our lager, which art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk, at home as it is in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillage as we forgive those who spill against us. And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer, the bitter and the lager, for ever and ever. Barmen.
Until recently, I was working a 4-day week, each day being 10 hours long to make up the standard 40-hour week. I completed all my projects on time and no loss of productivity ensued. Actually, since I invariably made dentist, doctors, etc. appointments always on my days off there was less unscheduled time off.
I am now working a 34-hour week which counts a full-time or part-time depending upon who you ask.
However, the days are 7, 7, 7, 7 and 6 hours (on Friday) and I was thinking of seeing if I can change this to four 8.5-hour days - unlikely to happen as it is the government and they have pretty fixed rules.
This makes me wonder how many organisations could switch to four day weeks without any loss of productivity, and perhaps an increase?
Even those who work from home may benefit from an extra day they are not required to answer the telephone.
How would you feel about such a change to your schedule?
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
