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?

In the future, after you've made enough money to invest in a time machine, take said time machine back to the past and give your younger self enough money to invest in a time machine at an earlier period of time, thus increasing your potential wealth. You'll return to the future richer than when you left. Or dead, one of the two.

Too many to count.

As a business owner I will tell you this,just because you close the doors and go wherever for the evening you're never off work.You want to build your business you take every opportunity you can to pass out business cards,meet potential customers,hell sit around the bar(if you do that) and talk to strangers about it.

Truth #1: You never get rich working for someone else.
Truth #2: If you do work for someone else, you are expendable and you will be worked to the bone then discarded when no longer needed.
Whatever your goal is, start today, write down your vision, create the architecture, and start building.

You're thinking right. If you aren't making your own decisions, you are living with someone else's.

I work the required amount meaning, the amount required to get whatever is on my plate completed on time.

My hours now are routinely 45-50hrs...which is a huge improvement over 2-4 years ago. Then again, 3 people are now doing what I was, so that helps cut down on the 70-80+hr weeks.
