Anyone who has had a serious job in a private company--senior management that is, or has been self-employed could only dream of a 40-hour week--or a 37.5 for that matter. Last year a Harvard study of 27 of their alumni who were CEOs of major corporations showed that they averaged 62.5 hours a week including 79 percent of weekend days at an average of 3.9 hours daily, and 70 percent of vacation days. That sounds modest to me and probably doesn't include travel and commute time.
