Make Your Own Schedule

It’s 8:30 a.m. and you’re stuck in traffic. Again. Your car is guzzling extra gallons of pricey gas and you arrive at work stressed out and late for your 9 o’clock meeting. Even better, you’ll get to do it all again tonight as you try to get back home, and then again in the morning as you return to work. It seems like there has to be a better way, and maybe there is: The Alternative Work Week. The concept takes your average 9 to 5 job and turns it upside down. Yes, you’ll still work 40 hours a week. But when you arrive, when you leave, and how long you stay can vary wildly. Here, a few tips to getting the go-ahead for an alternative schedule and making it work for you.
