When I started in public accounting, my boss informed me that during tax season it was mandatory that I work 55 hours a week. But, if I worked less than 70 hours others would view me as a slacker!
During those 70 hour weeks, I remember many Mondays spending hours cleaning up the mistakes I made on Sunday.
In a Harvard Business Review article, Matt Plummer and Jo Wilson’s research reveals that when hours worked exceed 55 hours a week, cognitive performance and work engagement levels decline, dragging down the quality of the work produced with it.
Proverbs 23:4 teaches, “Do not weary yourself to gain wealth, Cease from your consideration of it.”
God calls us to work hard, but don’t grow weary to the point of being counterproductive.
