Many of us feel pressure to stay late at the office — we’d hate to be the first to leave, and we want our supervisors to think we’re working hard. This thinking is antiquated. The arbitrary nine-to-five schedule was instituted in the 1800s, but it doesn’t align with what we know about how we work best. In truth, we should be working fewer, smarter hours: People often confuse busyness for productivity, and the mixup can lead to tired, stressed-out and unproductive employees.
