    So, the phrase "Go big or go home" doesn't apply to you. You seem to go big at your office and at home. Interesting....

    I hear that BTB! In my offline profession, I am always on-call as the IT guy for our small lab. I enjoy my job simply because I enjoy the people I work with and have been growing with the company for 16 years. I dabble in IM because I needed a hobby and hanging out here and implementing ideas is sort of a stress relief for me.

    I agree you gotta put in the time to be successful at anything.

    Oh yeah, I'm 54 years old.

    If I can handle that schedule you certainly can (excluding Old Salt and other brothers of my age group).

    I can handle that schedule 7 days a week but do not because that would be selfish and offensive to my wife but if I was single that schedule would be so left behind me as I would make it look like child's play.

    Any single guys/gals here that have the stones to work that scheule for 6 months?

    I'd love to see those results as to your efforts.

    I was talking to BTB a few hours ago and and today I don't think it's a good idea.
    I live in London I've been back up an to Liverpool all week.
    You get in an there is work to be done so you crack on and do it.
    Two nights no sleep is like drunk driving. Money can wait!
    But I hate working weekends.

    There for a second, I thought you were working more than me... :)

    Working hard is good. You have to get it while the gettin is good.

    BUT....

    We must keep our priorities in place. We will never be in a hospital bed wishing we had put in a few more hours of work.

    True fact!

    Inspiring! At this age people love to take rest. I think you don't know the meaning of rest. When i work 16hrs of day, next day i come up with excuses. Have to follow you.
    BTB all i have in you is RESPECT+
