Office hours are meaningless

If you’re performing you don’t need to be at office by 8am. You’re valuable, who cares what your office hours are.

If you’re not performing, you also don’t need to be at office by 8am. You’re useless, who cares what your office hours are.

You’re an entrepreneur.

You answer to yourself.

Being at work 8am is meaningless if you don’t deliver the goods.

Being at work 8am is meaningless if you do deliver the goods.

The only thing that matters is delivering the goods.

PS: As a leader, “delivering the goods” includes leading from the front. If you want your team to work long hours, they need to see you working the same hours.
