Yes I get where you are coming from. I don't know if you have seen the movie "Just Like Heaven" with Reese Witherspoon. But in this movie she was a doctor that worked all the time (I mean all the time 22 hour shifts). And her whole life was her work and she got in an accident and was in a coma. Her spirit met up with the person renting her apt. and through everything she realized that she had used up most of her life by working and not doing anything else. So yes it does make one wonder if it is worth it. My hubby works between 45-75 hours a week and we still have a hard time making ends meet. It shouldn't have to be this way. I myself work several part time jobs and today I am going job hunting for another because we need to pay off medical debt. It is kind of sad that it has to be this way. We should be able to enjoy life while we have it.

NO it's not worth it. If you are working that hard then somethings wrong. I would suggest that you look at a new job or some other way of makeing a living. I personally began my search search on the interet for additional ways of makeing money. I figure I have just a few more years and my home based business will take over and run itself. I enjoy what I do at home as well as at my job. But I would love to be able not to have to work and be able to spend money. And If anyone wants to know what I'm doing, Just contact me and I will share. Otherwise good Luck in whatever you do.

Sorry, To add a little more to what I said above, one should not run for money and decide working hours and follow them strictly after you have gained enough experience at work. I do the same. I leave exactly after 8 hour, or I would resign even my boss knows it, but with the experience and skills I posses, it is all ok

I can understand your frustration Gaurav! I am happy that you realized this and started asking a question to yourself first. One should realize that he is working to make his life better, happier and should not be over ambitious for a big house, cars and other stuff. One should minimize the needs of himself and his family and you automatically start earning more and you feel better. Not that you should not aim higher, but one should understand his own limitations and try to cope with it. One can not BUY Happiness! Even Tatas & Ambanis are not happy though they are billionaires! Happiness is a state of mind, it has nothing to do with money, directly.
