Weekdays 3:00pm - 7:00pm

Wouldn’t you rather be on the beach on a Friday afternoon than stuck at your office? Some businesses allow for “summer hours” when they allow employees to leave a little early on Friday afternoon. But what happens when you have so much work to do that you can’t finish it all in time to leave early? Here are some suggestions:

1. Be more productive during the rest of the week by checking email less often. People spend time checking email, on average, 4.1 hours a day. Be proactive, not reactive.

2. Eat lunch at your desk on Fridays. You’ll save time by not having to leave the office.

3. Don’t schedule or attend meetings on Friday.
