For years, a productive work week has been defined by clocking eight hours a day, five days a week, to reach the magical 40 hours. When the clock strikes five o’clock, you’re golden-- go home! You’ve done your job!
Some of the best qualities people possess are ones that are never formally taught. They’re probably not listed as requirements on a job application, and employers likely won’t assess progress of such skills.
