Limiting the Work Day to Get More Done

Writing for Financial Times, Lucy proposes a return to the 9 to 5 workday, citing a number of benefits from doing so, including:
– a reduction in time wasted by being at work but actually getting little done.
– reducing the time allocated to work, thereby increasing the urgency of work but creating non-work / personal time outside of work.
– allowing people to turn off from work, and not treating employees as though they have to be on all the time.
– increased creativity.
– a proper embrace of boundaries.

It’s worth a read. Thoughts?
