Everyone needs a job to sustain life.
We need money for food, accommodation, transportation and other things in life that stand between our need and desires.
So, we work to earn money, with the hope to change our life around.
Do you work more than 8 hours a day, to make sure that your projects are done on time?
Perhaps you can earn a few more bucks by doing some other jobs, aside from the projects you are working on?
The truth is some people do work 24/7 – with a few hours off to sleep, maybe.
Other than sleeping, everything else is all about work, getting work done and gaining more work, after the previous work is done.
I don’t really work 24 hours, 7 days a week, but I definitely work more than 8 hours.
Sometimes, I find myself going towards the “working 24/7” mode, especially when I have tons of work to be completed.
I don’t seem to be able to take my mind off work, at anytime and anywhere, not even when I am spending time with family and I have no idea why I just can’t leave work where it is supposed to be – in my home office.
However, I do enjoy freelancing even though having to work more than 8 hours, because I get to work at home, using my own laptop and wear whatever I want, without having to worry about wardrobe malfunctions, spending additional money for lunches or paying even more expenses for transportation to and fro the office.
The whole point of me being in the freelancing industry is to avoid working in the office, although I only need to work about 8 hours in the office. Now, I truly enjoy the world of freelancing, even if it means I have to work more than 8 hours a day.
Do you work more than 8 hours a day, or do you set 8 hours as your working hours and the rest of the hours are non-working related?
There is nothing wrong working more than 8 hours except you have to watch your health and sanity.
*I do enjoy coffee, and if I have it my way, I might have more than one cup of coffee a day, so feel free to fund my coffee addiction 🙂
