I've been working 6 days a week @ 12 hours a day! I know that I should stop, stop, stop and change this lifestyle but I couldn't help it. It's not that I just looooove my job so much, but every time I start working I just forget about the rest of the world and Father time would just run too fast. My hard work has paid off so far, but I don't want to wake up one day, already 50 years old, and realize that I've let my whole life pass me by because I was so absorbed with WORK.

I agree, when there is alot of work to be done, the day can just fly by. Overtime pay is great too hahah

It is actually, and money is a very good motivation.. but sometimes I wonder if it's really worth it..

Work is only worthwhile if one can save their money for old age. Do you have an IRA? Do you have Life Insurance so in case you die your loved ones will be cared for? If not, then no work is worthwhile.

Well I'm currently not working right now, but at my last job I was pulling 10 to 16 hour shifts 6 days a week. And that was on a slow week. It can get really exhausting. Sometimes you just have to step back and say enough is enough.

I used to work 12-14 hours a day. I am in sales and working long hours is good. I made lots in bonuses. After 2 years of working long hours, I realized I needed time for myself . Now 45 hours a week,which is what is required of me, is all I put in. I miss the bonuses but time is valuable, too.

I usually work about 60 hours a week in 5 days. This week though I will not hit 40, my husband is in the hospital and I have to drive my son to the airport on Saturday...so that cuts into work time.

I work 37.5 hours every other week and 43.5 hours the other week. And in a nursing home environment those are long hours and on my 12 hour day I swear I have been there a week.

I have 5 days of 10 hours/day and then during 2 days I split about 5 hours of work. It really all depends on the week as sometimes I can have a lot of work to do and some days I can be free as the wind, but now it is pretty hectic...
