    If I could ask: if you want to avoid burnout and improve work / balance – why not do four 8-hour days a week?

      We're working on improving efficiency as it is, so we're thinking about starting with the same number of hours per week. I think the eventual goal is to improve efficiency to a point where we'd only do 8 hour days 4 days a week but we just aren't able to do that yet.

          A lot, but here are a few things:

          1) Less meetings whenever possible 2) Afternoon uninterrupted time - no interruptions, everyone quits chat and email, focused time 3) Standing meetings each day to synch up quickly at the beginning so we don't block each other
