Currently schools and companies in the world are all having a schedule as working 8 hours every day and 5 days per every week. But how about having a different time table?
If there is a schedule making it possible for people working more time a day but 3 days per week, I will be happy to accept it. Personally speaking, I think working in a long time but short days can benefit people a lot in their own plan and work effciency.
Firstly, having more free days allows people plan their own schedule. An abundant of free time is always welcomed. In reality, there are merely 2 days for people to relax in a week. 2 days are really a short time. We all have this kind of experience--long time a go we may have seen some beautiful pictures of landscape in the internet or TV, and those scenes have impressed us deeply. Will of traveling to those places definitely has showed in our minds. We are always willing to go to that places. But unfortunately, there is never enough time for us. 2 days are too short to travel to places at long distance. Thus, if there are more free days, people will be able to plan for things they always want to do. And it is not just for travel. People can read a whole book in 3 days, and maybe make a craft by themselves. In short, long time makes plans possible, and therefore adds more interest in people's daily life.
Secondly, working for a long time can benefit people from concentrating on the job. Short work time with several times can be disrupting when people are doing some big projects. According to a research about human behavior, when people are doing their work, they are not concentrating on it in the start, but instead, they may be unwilling to do it at first. And then after the short time of working, they will finally put themselves into the work. Therefore it's essential for people to have enough long time to finish their work only in one period, which can help boost the work efficiency.
In conclusion, working for long time and more free days provides people with the possiblity of accomplishing big plans and concentrating on large projects. I really hope one day we can enjoy the happiness of 3 days off every week.
