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?

my friend Darren kind of stumbled into the Post Office (which obviously isn't doing well) and he makes $24 an hour and works 65-70 hours a week with 25-30 of those being time and a half ($36 an hour).

I just can't believe how much they pay postal workers and how much overtime they are willing to give. No wonder the Post Office is in horrible shape.

He also says with their union they basically pay 3 people to do 1 job since the retirement is so jacked up. He says they are paying his full wage, plus the full wage of the guy that retired from his spot, plus the wage from the guy that retired from the retired guys spot.

'Merica!

of course how many 70 hour weeks can you work in a row before you go "Postal."

Of course if I was making 90-100K at a freaking Post Office I don't think I'd ever go Postal...I'd have no problem not having a life for 5-10 years before I started scaling back once I got my "tenure" and all of my promotions.

Usually 10-12 hours a day, but when it gets busy, I start pushing 15 hour days.

I make less now but I have a very clear career path that can probably be achieved in 5 years or less...where I'd be making about twice as much.

I sometimes do question my decision though because I felt happier in the restaurant industry (as of now at least).
I wonder how much time you'd have to put in to manage a restaurant that made $1 million per month

Depends.

I want to serve at a restaurant that does that sort of intake!

You could work 4 shifts a week and make $1500.

but I assume even those Vegas restaurants that do that much revenue have a large management staff that probably doesn't work more than 50 hours per week.

Not sure about the GM...but the GM at a place like that probably makes $300K (if not more) per year.

It put in 100+ hours last pay period. It's becoming more the norm as opposed to my usual 80 hour pay period.

40-45 per week but I am hourly, which is super awesome. Plus I get 1.5 pay for any amount worked over 40 hours. I get paid for all the time I am at work, which IMO is better than salary for my job.

I teach high school for 8 hrs a day and usually go hang out at my liquor store with the manager for a few hours around 4 days a week. I make sure our beer and liquor orders are taken care of.

Make a point to keep up with accounting. That will be big as to whether you're successful or not.

Just got word tonight from a friend I work with that they are doing some directory re-shuffling and will be offering me extended overtime hours, if I want to take them, to cover extra treatments. If I can work 45 hours per week, that would add about 1k to my monthly income. Score!
