Sometimes Working More Decreases Productivity

[A study from Stanford] found that productivity per hour declines sharply when the workweek exceeds 50 hours, and productivity drops off so much after 55 hours that there’s no point in working any more. That’s right, people who work as much as 70 hours (or more) per week actually get the same amount done as people who work 55 hours.

While productivity declines after 50 hours a week, it almost stops entirely after 55. Eventually, your brain and body simply can’t handle the load. You need rest to be able to come back and get more done.
