i am working offline for 8 hours daily and 3 hours online. that will total to 11 hours a day and for most people that's considered as overworked. i don't usually consider this an issue since i am able to attend to my needs and wants. it's always everybody's choice. it's always like don't expect more when you work less. after all in a day's work, i am super satisfied. how about you?

I spend about 12 hours in front of my computer. I'm not kidding! I work at home. I'm a transcriber. I also write articles. I have a blog and I do MyLot if I have some time left. I'm okay with it. I don't think you will ever get overworked when you love what you're doing. But then, balance is essential. We need to take care of the other areas of our lives like our health and our relationships. My friends always have to remind me not to spend too much time working.

that's right. you can't feel tiredness if you love what you're doing. time management is also a key. i just wonder Why is it that so many people are willing to tolerate work they don’t enjoy for the sake of a paycheck? I think it’s because most of them simply don’t know what it’s really like to be in love with their work. Their fear is greater than their power, so they never make the leap into the unknown to find out what it’s like to work from love instead of for money.

It is really satisfying when you accomplish a task. More so if you have finished a lot. Being workaholic depends on every people. Doing a lot of things saves your time for oppotunities and future investments. Dont expect too much if you are not doing anything or something to help yourself.

Yes. i also could get satisfaction from working. but i am not always working for such a long time. It is not good for my health. I should have enough time to do exercise, to reach someting new, to breath fresh air outside. I should leave some part of my time to my friends and family. They are also important to me except me. If i just focus on works. i will lose other things in life.

I am this kind of person i don't like to work a long time. I just finish my required woek. Then i have enough time to do what i like, not just the work. I don't like to be a working machine. I like to have different hobbies. I like to distribute my time to my family. working is just a part of my life, but not all.

I never experince in working but i m an idea about that.One day when i find a good job, i am very happy. When my job is a very challenging task and i know what are doing I think i work hard so that my salaries are increase. Because in a work we need our needs and wants in our everyday life. So if i am contented in my job i really interested to my job.

In a day I work for 8 hours in my duty as a crew and at the same time i study for 3 to 4 hours a day. A total of 11 to 12 hours a day. Sometimes people don't know how to properly budget there time. Where in fact i do have my own family to support. Sometimes its very stressful but in the long run i know there something waiting for me in return.

I never experience this yet because i haven't tried to work before. If in the future and I will be given a good job, I will be very happy and I will enjoy that job. Regarding with this topic, if there will be cases that are like this I will make sure that I will be more contented of having a work with a good salary. But, if this will not happen in the future and I will not be given this opportunity maybe because I did not grab that opportunity, then I will make sure that the work I will be applying for is still good for me. I will not complain because I have chosen that field.

For me, if I really want my job and I was happy on it I will be satisfied to work overtime. And I will be super satisfied if my salary is high and also if I am secured in my work. In the first place, the first intention to work is not the hours to be working. Its the payment you get in return to what you do. And if your boss would be looking at your effort, at least he/she may be satisfied too.

_I haven't experienced yet to work in a formal working condition but I tried working at a farm more than 8 hours and its very tiring and terrible body pains. I often do it every semestral break, I do work in my uncle's farm. But when I'm given money at the end of vacation day, all pains are gone, i mean, its worthy working over time especially when you are appreciated too. Maybe soon when I will be working in, I will experience too.Anyway, when you really want your job and your not just after the salary, you will most likely and willing to work OT.

In my opinion as long as you love what you are doing you will not get tired of it. When you are given a task that you really like, its just like your playing but not to the extent that the quality of the output that you do is compromised. Also people who does not enjoy their work treat it as a job but for enthusiastic people they treat it as something worth enjoying.

There is the so called 8-Hr Labor Law wherein a person should work for only eight hours a day. But if you are happy with what you are doing, it is still fine. Just don't abuse yourself too much. Make sure that you are really satisfied with what you are doing. It is not a guarantee that you have money and you can buy anything you want. Your health is more important that money. You should still balance your life with work and leisure. Live your life to the fullest. If you are contented and happy with your work, then live with it.
