Work life balance

As I write this it is Tuesday.  Yesterday was a public holiday here so we got a log weekend.  I have a great time with my family and feel refreshed for the first time in months.  So why can't I do that every week if I want to ?

To me, I don't do 40+ hours a week 48 weeks a year very well.  It burns me out.  For some people that may be perfect, but not me.  One day I hope to find an employer that lets me work 4 days a week or 46 weeks a year (or both).  I think that would be about perfect. 

Has anyone found the perfect balance ?  Are there any employers out their who let their employees pick the conditions that suit them ?

Let me know if you've found the perfect balance !
