As the old adage 'time is money' sounds, thus, following the reality.
How to see the chinese massemilliardær Jack Ma in each case on life. The man who is good for about 259 billion Danish crowns, in a recent blogoplæg explained that he sees a 72-hour workweek as a gift from above.
The high number of hours per week has been dubbed the 996 strategy, because you work from nine in the morning to 21 evening six days a week, writes finansmediet MarketWatch.
'Personally, I see it as a blessing to work for 996-strategy. How to achieve success, if you are not willing to make an extra effort and sacrifice of his time?'

54-year-old Jack Ma is a true forretningsmogul as chairman of the board of Alibaba Group which is a multinational technology conglomerate. But one should not hope to work with him, if you want to have a certain amount of leisure.
'Why even try to be with? We do not lack people who are comfortable working eight hours a day.'
Milliardærens point of view has created a stir on chinese social media, where several users are gone in favour of the normal workload. A points out, for example, that there would not be time to start a family, if you had to work after the 996 model.
The chinese government has also spoken out on the subject through statsmediet 'the People's daily newspaper, where they write:
'To advocate for the hard work and dedication does not mean forcing people to work overtime. The mandatory culture around 996 model shows not just arrogance from senior managers, but is also impractical and unfair.'
