I see lot of people working 8+ hrs a day and routine work over weekend! Do you prefer that or work smart hrs. I was the 8+ hrs guy with work over weekends. However, recently moved to a flexible hr working. 4 hrs in morning, 2 hrs. In evening, 2 hrs. At night and it has worked wonders. Productivity increased, able to balance work life. P.S: not for everyone, in consulting you need to block calendars and stick to it to make it happen. FYI - temporary for me as it’s WFH in COVID.
