Hours per week / survey

How many hours per week (typical week) do you put in?

I need to work 16 hours per day from Monday to Friday. and 10 hours per day from Saturday to Sunday.

So you work 100 hrs a week?

several year ago a study was done to compare the performance of people that work 40 hours with the output of people working many more hours 50, 60 70, etc.

The magic number of hours seems to be around 48 hours before output starts to drop off.

The study found that mistakes, sloppy thinking, rework, and sluggishness seems to creep into the output after 48 hours.

just my 2 cents.

presently, I am glad to be working 40 hours.

That is why in UK there is legal 48 hours week. Not many take advantage of that and usually it is around 40 but beeing designer you work full time: you always looks for inspiration, you always think about projects etc.

40-45 hours.

legal 48 hour work weeks.

I have legally worked many 65-70 hour work weeks. But work performance was really my point. If I made my employees work 100 hours a week, I would get the worst performance and way too many costly mistakes.

Thx everyone.

about 45 hrs/per week and then another 10-15 on my own work
