How much time do you put in at work?

I'm a 27 year old male, and im starting to realize that this is my time, it's now or never. Right here, right now, i need to make a future for myself. If im ever going to be where i imagine myself being when im 50, then i gotta get my ass in gear and find the motivation to do what it takes to succeed. I have to change.

Clocking in/out everyday depending on some one else to pay me.....that's not going to cut it. My wife lost her job a month ago for cost saving reasons, and i need to make some damn money. Just getting by doesn't cut it anymore. I have to grow the **** up and create some opportunities for myself or risk being 50 years old, renting out of an apartment and living off of Social Security.....and struggling paycheck to paycheck from now until then.

**** that.

I just had a real emotional realization that....this just isn't good enough and nothing is going to change unless i step it up and change it. I need to put in more work. For myself.

So how much time do you put in in a days worth of work?

most normal weeks are around 45 hours, some weeks are longer. We are supposed to have off every other Friday, so that makes 9 hour days (not including lunch breaks and so forth). Sometimes I have to work long and sometimes I have to work "off" Fridays or weekends, but not too often.

poor poll choices.

In general I do 8 hour days give or take, but sometimes they can be 12 hr or more if needed. Sometimes I may take off early on a Friday to account for that, sometimes not.

Not nearly enough.

Although I work from home, so technically I spend 24 hours a day at work.

Do you have kids?
If not, the best idea is to change companies within the same industry. As long as you don't burn any bridges on your path, you can end up back at the same company in the same position making 30% or more than you are now.
I've known a lot of guys who have done this. Unfortunately, I knocked my wife up three times so I can't endeavor on the same experiment. I also carry around a great level of envy and hatred towards my friends who have been successful using my advice.

Put in 16 just yesterday. Worked 5 on Sunday. 9 today. 30 hours down and it's Tuesday. The less glamorous side of Advertising...

The good news is that this kind of schedule is rare for me. I'm typically running 40-50 hours a week.

I spend too much time in meetings, so my 8+ hours at work is diluted.

Spend 9-10 in the office, then have the laptop at home for a less intense work experience... Usually called for issues at a facility in the evenings once to twice a week. It's the new world order, get used to it if you're in IT...

Fun days with labor not liking the new world order too much!
