Let a virtual office help you work smarter so you can get enough zzzzzzzzzzs to stay on top of your game.
Americans work more hours than workers in other industrialized countries, and according to Gallup Work and Education surveys, no Americans work longer hours than the self-employed. Half of self-employed businesspeople work more than 44 hours a week and a whopping 26% work at least 60 hours; a much larger percentage than workers in any other sector, such as private business or government work.
I was thinking of how a virtual office might help small business owners cut back on such punishing schedules when I came across an article in the New York Times titled ‘How Little Sleep Can You Get Away With?’ that underscored the impact that not getting enough sleep has on performance.
Scientific studies were performed at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania showing that anything less than 8 hours of sleep each night seriously reduced the sustained attention of test subjects. How many self-employed business owners get that much sleep regularly? Even 7 hours of sleep a night reduced reaction time, speed and accuracy at mental tasks and even the ability to focus in meetings. Those who slept 6 or less hours fared even worse.
