Deep focus work can be limited to 3-4 hours per day, but there is plenty of other work to fill up the time in a work day. Documentation, communication, meetings, support, bug triage, etc... not everything we do requires intense concentration.

Agreed. There are a lot of lighter tasks available for the rest of the time.

Actually, there is also the other case. At times when you're so invested in a problem that you spend 6-8+ hours and forget to eat, sleep, etc..
It may even be hyper productive. Of course that always seems to come with a next day cost 😬
