        I'm a fan of this quote. I don't think I could ever work any less regardless of how much I earn. I will continue to work hard and achieve twice as much.

          Different strokes for different folks. Hey, go for it if that's what makes
          you happy.

          Me? I'd rather spend my time doing other things.

        Mine too.

        I'd much rather play than work, sometimes the two go hand in hand. Depends on how you define 'play' I guess.

          I believe in working exactly as hard as I have to in order to achieve exactly what I want.

          Nobody ever looks up from their death bed and wishes they'd spent more time at work.

            I like the conflicting quote :p

            As Steve said, it does depend on the person. I have a strong passion and hunger for success. Success is never graded at a certain level and there is no limit to success. I don't even consider what I do as work.

            Donald Trump is his own success and I'm sure he works the hours and effort as 4-5 men, or at least he did as he was building up. Claude Hopkins is an idol to me, his success is because of his determination and passion. As he said in his book, he could have been a regular copywriter on a regular salary, but he enjoyed what he was doing and that brought him great success and recognition.

            If you can make $1000 a day working 2 hours a day. Why not work 8,12 hours a day learning and making more. I'm lucky not to really have a family of my own at this stage, and a girlfriend that supports what I do. Some people have ties in life, I understand that.

            Marketing is an ever changing tide, and you need to be on the ball at all times and ever learning.

            I'm 26 this year, so I'm still young. When I'm 40 I will probably have a different attitude.

              Why not work 8, 12 hours a day learning and making more? Been there, done that.

              At 26, I was much the same. At 52, I can see the other side of the hill and I want to enjoy the view as I go.

              That doesn't mean I won't still put in long hours for something I want to achieve. It just means that I already have many of the things I want, so I manage my life to enjoy those things to the extent that I can.

                The "life" now is a lot better than working 10-14 hour days, out in the 100 degree heat 5-6 days a week on a construction site. After going through that, I don't know if I'll ever consider what I do now actual "work"

                  Ah, someone from a similar background. I remember digging footings for conservatorys working 12 hours a day for £25 per day. That was labor. Internet Marketing, well I consider it a passion more than work.

                    Yea, now that's work! I built screen enclosures down here in Florida. We were up on 30 and 40 foot ladders all day putting 30 foot lengths of metal together. I don't think I'll ever consider this "work"...a lot less dangerous too

                  Exactly, Bryan.

                  After working in a nuke plant for 11 years in extremes of heat and cold, but
                  usually heat, sitting at my pc will never be considered work.

                  Someone said nobody will ever say they wished they worked more in their
                  life when they're about to die.

                  Quite a bold statement and presumption.

                  I'll wish I accomplished more, and if that means wishing I had worked more,
                  then I guess I'll be an exception.

                  It doesn't matter how anyone else feels about it, and I don't care how others
                  live their lives.

                  I'll work hard as much as possible until it's time to leave this place.

                I will agree with you John. I hope when I'm that age, I can enjoy what I've made in life.

                Nice catch in your picture btw :p

    I have a life only because my favorite pass time is part of my business. SO when I'm out hunting rocks and gemstones - is it playing or is it working? I like doing something that the distinction between work and play isn't so easy to draw.

    Short answer: Not really.

    Personally, I have bills to pay. I love the teams that I work with, it's all a very tight knit tribe that we have here.

    I work very hard, and I party hard, but only on occasion. A stoner friend of mine in college once said "It's not a party if it happens every night."

      I like the way your friend thinks
      In my younger years, about 35 years ago, I drank and "partied" every night.
      Most times it seemed more like a job or that it was required, in other words it quickly became no fun.


      To answer the original question, yes I have a life.
