Current convention of seven-day week is an anachronism that does not stand up to any criticism.

It creates at least two major inconveniences:

  1. since 7 is a prime number, it is literally impossible to plan truly regular activities attached to days of week (unless it is daily or once-a-week activity).  Irregular rhythm of life has negative impact on health and productivity and therefore costs world trillions of $$$ annually.
  2. there is long ongoing debate about switching world to 4/3 work/weekend days schedule. Current 5/2 schedule is proven to be very poor work-life balance that yet again costs world trillions of $$$, but 4/3 is not adopted at scale anywhere because it's a big and risky leap from 28% to 42% of work-free days. This false dichotomy exists because we stick to obsolete and archaic 7 days week tradition.

Therefore I strongly urge world leaders and governments to switch over to 8 days week as soon as practically possible. Ideally from next week.

This will solve aforementioned problems:

  1. Eight days week allows to plan truly regular activities at 4 different intervals: 1, 2, 4 or 8 days.
  2. Eight days week allows to create 5/3 work/weekend schedule i.e. 37.5% of work-free days which is a low risk change that will immediately improve work-life balance and make world happier and more productive.
