@shawnblanc on 8 week work cycles

This is a great post on working in 8 week cycles.

I’ve tried working a 4×10 schedule (where you do 10 hours per day, 4 days a week and then take a 3-day weekend). And while I loved the 3-day weekend, I found that I was less productive overall. Those additional 2 hours per day were usually not very productive for me because I was tired.
I have found that it is much easier to compress 8 weeks worth of work into 6 or 7 weeks than it is to compress 5 days of work into 4 days.

I’m on the other side of this as I do work for Shawn’s sites. I’ve never found it to be a problem. He always seems responsive.

How could you put this into practice in your work?
