Ever since we were knee-high to a grasshopper, most of us have been taught to strive for the American dream. The dream being to work your way up the corporate ladder, pay your dues by working long hours for many years so that when you’re older, you can possibly start to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

To this so called ‘American dream,’ I now say, “Bologna!” My thinking has evolved, and I’m a firm believer in a balanced life of work and play...

Carol: When do you know when your hard work is too much?

Have you read 4-hour work week by Tim Ferriss?

Ciao,

Yes, I have that awesome book! :) It's different for each person and there are a lot of variables.

I focus on three high-leverage activities that will push my business forward and outsource some of the other mundane stuff.

I keep Sundays for family and worship and half Saturday for time off and relaxation. Evenings are more and more spent with family as I perfect my system, but it really is individual for each person.

Thanks for your thought-provoking comment! :)
