One day a week is optimum for an encore hustle - Hustler Daily Thumbs Up - July 4
Hello fellow Encore Hustlers
There have been many studies touting the mental benefits of continuing to perform some work even after leaving full time employment. But what the optimal amount of work to receive the sense of fulfillment and wellbeing that comes with paid employment? According to this article from The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia), that based on a research study from Cambridge University (UK), the optimum benefits come from only 8 hours a week.
Interestingly enough I recently read another study that the average office employee only performs about 2 hours of significant work on a daily basis and the rest of the time is wasted on non-core activities. It seems that we almost self-regulate to that amount.
