How to Be a Realist in New York City: The Five-Hour Workweek

The five-hour workweek is a buzzword of the modern age.

For many people, it’s as much a part of their daily life as their work schedule, which has exploded over the last 20 years.

For others, it seems a myth.

But if you’re looking for the answer, you can do better than simply looking at the numbers.

Here are the 5 things you need to know to make the best of your working week.


It’s not a myth, it just isn’t a big deal for most people.

While some people might struggle with this, most people make a good job out of it.

According to a recent Gallup survey, 77% of people say they “always manage their time well.”

In the same survey, people who are in the top 20% of their field have a median hourly pay of $27.24, compared to just $10.60 for those who are the bottom 20%.

In other words, if you don’t have a lot of time to get things done, you’re better off not working at all.


You can work longer without sacrificing productivity.

In a survey of more than 2,000 people, a whopping 90% said that they’re comfortable working over 10 hours per day.

A whopping 75% said they prefer working from home, and only 7% prefer to work from home more than 10 hours a day.

Working from home isn’t the worst idea, but it’s probably not the most popular one either.


The five hours don’t necessarily have to be your sole source of income.

There are other ways to make a living besides working at your desk.

Working remotely can be a great way to save money on rent, utilities, and food.


If you’re working from a desk, you’ll need a laptop to work remotely.

While you can still use a desk for online work, it can be more difficult for people to work without a laptop.

With a few tweaks, you could be able to easily work from a laptop on-the-go.


The bottom line is, the five-day workweek may not seem like such a big thing when you first start, but over time, it will become more and more important.

There’s no denying that the five days are a major part of your day, but how you spend them can make a huge difference.
