I saw this post on Satish’s blog and I strongly recommend that everybody should get it signed by his or her doctor
Certified that Mr. /Miss ____________ _____ , working in your organization, is suffering from ‘time-bound’ illness. Due to this, he will NOT be able to work more than 8 hours a day and 5 days a week.
Any attempt to stretch beyond this timing will lead to severe health problems. The losses to the company due to medical reimbursements will be far more compared to the gains made by stretching beyond 8 hours.
It is also warned to keep my patient away from any kind of shocking news such as “Come over weekend..”, “Let’s work on holiday..”, “Leave cannot be granted” etc. which can directly lead to heart strokes.
In view of the above, it is strongly recommended to adjust your deadlines in accordance with the convenience of my patient.

If we keep humour aside this is a serious issue in many of the leading IT firms and employees work more than 8 hours which affects there health.
According to my experience we can not assure the quality of the work done in the extra hours.
We should desipline ourself to work for 8 hours.
And we should spend those extra hours with our family, kids or learn something knew, read books etc.
There are lots of good things in this world other than work 🙂
