Years ago, one one my colleagues lived by a 6 day week - 6 days of 28 hours = 168 hours, rather than 7 days of 24 hours = 168 hours. Monday mornings when we arrived at 08:00, he had been working for 5-6 hours already. Tuesdays he started out an hour or two before us, Wednesdays a couple hours later, and Thursdays he wasn't there until after lunch. Fridays he wasn't there at all, having worked enough hours the first four days of the week.

This company employed you to get things done, not to sit there for 40 hours a week. If you completed your tasks in significantly less than 40 h/week, you were expected to be assigned more tasks. If your tasks required much more than 40 h/week, you were expected to ask for an assistant to offload you. Noone counted hours by the minutes. Certainly this simplified the formal issues of adapting to a 6*28 schedule, and the guys in his team managed to schedule meetings to fit his daily rythm.
