|I found that I was most successful when I spent weekends and long hours doing my work. |
This time can be especially productive because it can be done for long stretches without interruptions.
It also gets noticed that you're a hard, dedicated worker instead of someone who doesn't care.
It just seems like the people who spend the most time on something will be the most successful.
Of course, it's not just a function of the time it's also a function of what you do with the time.
If the work is tedious it will be very difficult to spend extra time on it. If the work is fun, creative or exciting it will be much easier.
You could spend these weekends doing other tasks but weigh the advantages of being the most productive at your office?
If you don't believe the benefits then spend one weekend and see if it helps.
