Do you work during weekends?

My job is mainly output-based and does not require the normal 8am-5pm work schedule. It requires extensive researching and writing. As such, there are times that I needed to work even during weekends to deliver and meet my deadlines for the period. But I am trying my best to finish my work before saturday of every week to rest and spend my weekends with my family. In your case, do you work during weekends?

Same here. Even during weekends and doing something else, I am still usually online to immediately read incoming emails and respond to them.

I work almost everyday. I don't know how I survive. But then again I'm self employed. When work comes my way, I do it. At least I still exercise.

You are so hardworking. But, I, too, make sure that I make the most out of my free time, such as accepting other project-based jobs, on top of my regular job.

I am glad I don't work on weekends now on my current schedule. My Sunday is Church day. But I work during the holidays. If holidays fall during weekdays, I have to go to work.

Great! I also allocate some time during Sundays to go to work. But after that, I usually work to make sure that I am on track with the progress of my output.

I run my own business, I work when I want to work and rest when I want too, the more work I do the better because I'm doing the work for myself and not for a company or a boss, so yes working on weekends is just like any day for me not unless there is some kind of an affair.

That is the benefit of having your own business. You also own your time and can decide freely when to work and when to rest. You are not compelled to go to the office every weekdays, 8 hours a day. Great for you!

Just look at the brighter side and the benefit of your job. You got to earn substantial overtime pay.
