Why does the day go quicker 8am-4pm than 9-5

9-5 feels like forever.

8-4 I’m amazed how fast the day goes

    Your commute gets cut and emptier office means more work that makes you forget time till the shenanigans start.

      I’ve done that before. It feels about the same as 8-4. Diminishing return

      You're so lucky to have the flexibility :)

    When do you go for lunch? Assuming typical 12 to 1pm, the post lunch session being just 3 hours might be giving you the feeling that the day is going quicker. We somehow get fixated mentally with lunch being the midpoint of the day even when it’s not always so

    Also, it's easier when you have the feeling that you are ahead of time. That makes you productive.

      Does Salesforce have a bad WLB?? Couldn't do 8-5

      No it's good. Depends on team and how much you want to make an effort. I could work less but I still want to get something done

    You also get out earlier so there’s more to look forward to

    You're so right. I wish I did 8-4 badly. Would have more of my day. But I'm in EST so we have to kinda match with PST people
