[E]very hour you work over 40 hours a week is making you less effective and productive over both the short and the long haul. And it may sound weird, but it’s true: the single easiest, fastest thing your company can do to boost its output and profits — starting right now, today — is to get everybody off the 55-hour-a-week treadmill, and back onto a 40-hour footing.

Sara Robinson in her popular Salon piece makes the case for the 40 hour work week, and it’s hard not to nod in agreement to the guideline of “eight for work, eight for sleep and eight for what we will.”

Are you nodding too? What about you, hard-working entrepreneurs?
