50-Minute Mondays

Your shrink can do it; why can't you?

Limit each hour of every working Monday to 50 minutes. This will allow you 240 extra minutes to spend wherever you like: a lazy Saturday morning, a Sunday afternoon.

Making the transition to 50-minute hours will be difficult at first, but you'll get the hang of it. Practice: look sympathetically at your (boss, fellow meeting attendees, computer, wristwatch), and say, "We'll have to stop here."

Be firm. You're a professional.

       Go find somebody who has ten minutes for to hear this idea.

Seriously, how many minutes after the hour can I clock in and still get paid for the whole first fifteen minutes?
