It seems like everyone these days is working 100 hour work weeks. Now more than ever, office workers and business owners work far longer hours to theoretically outdo their competition.

But does working longer really make you more effective? According to Jackie Nagel at Synnovatia, absolutely not.

“Work 50 hours a week and you’ll be in the top 5% of your industry. Work 60 hours a week and you’ll be in the top 1% of your industry, and if you work 70 hours a week, you’re a F-O-O-L.”

Nagel’s article discusses how it is more important for business owners to be working efficiently and strategically than just working for a long time.

“Is everything a priority in your world? If so, you’re not alone. It’s difficult to juggle the myriad of projects, tasks, goals, plans, and client demands to find one item that merits attention. Yet, our reluctance to invest time in sorting to uncover the priority leaves our mental and physical energy strained. Without that energy, performance suffers.”
