    Hello to everyone reading this

    Hope you are all having a wonderful day. Anyway, I will come straight to the point. What interests me is how much time are you people investing into your work/online projects? Does anyone track time using a timer such as Toggl and what are the numbers? How these numbers affect your earnings? I've seen people who work productively around 5-6 hours a day and earn more than people working 12+ hours a day.

    I've been in this industry for a while, started a journey a month ago and I am heading into this game quite serious...well, I am trying actually. The problem I think that I am having is that sometimes I feel like I am not investing enough time in it. I am quite a productive person, I can work productively around 5 hours each day (which I have tracked through Toggl timer) but I am having a feeling that is kinda low on my side.

    Though, when I have tried increasing the amount of hours, I noticed that my concentration failed badly every time I pass 6 hours of work and from then point forward, the quality of work suffer also (due to lack of concentration obviously) and I also feel unmotivated to do the work I kinda like doing.

    Anyone want to suggest a good technique for me to develop my routine and to pull a productive 8-hour work day? What is your experience?

    If your business is a startup, 14 hours a day is the norm. Once you got it automatized, 3-4 hours will be needed to keep it running. The other 10 hours to keep it growing. It's a lifestyle.

    8 hours is an average but 10 - 14 hours isn't a rare thing when the situation requires .

    I usually invest around 6 hours but I have noticed that youtube and reddit take away a lot of my time so I added a plugin which disables them I use it when working and it has been great so far!

    at start 12-18 hours, once you automate you can save a few. As you grow, you hire help and spend most time on coordination

    6 or 7 hours per day. I don't really track them though, unless I'm explicitly billing a client per hour.

    Around 10 hours infront of the computer. Actual work, maybe 3-4 hours. And then I take a week or a month off when I feel like it:)

    2-4 hours a day. Sometimes less and sometimes I take too many days off. It's just random. No strings attached. Especially when everything is on autopilot.

    8 to 12 hours per day, but I do other types of work withing those as well. I work seven days a week with one of those days not being a full day of work. I take a day or two off here and there form time to time.

    Productive hours are more important than the number of hours you work.

    However, if you're working significantly more hours, you'll get more done than others even if your productivity drops. To quote Elon Musk on this:

    Personally, I work from the minute I wake up till I go to sleep. That's not because I can't take time out. Rather, I just don't know what I'd do with any free time. :D

    It's called "Blacklist" while using it you can black list any website so I blacklisted these social media sites and it works perfectly as a productivity management tool.

    I literally smoke weed and do this all day, I try to go out with friends once a week so I don't lose them. But yeah from the time I wake up to the time my eyes are too heavy to stay up, I am about this I.M shitttt.

    I usually fall alseep at my desk anywhere from 1-5 am, wake up, take it over to the bedroom and sleep. Then wake up at 10am and get back to it.

    When I get all my autopilot campaigns earning the way they should, I plan to do a steady 8-12 hours a day, adding new income streams, but right now its 16 hours+
