I hear REALTORS® brag about their 80 hour work weeks but I don't think the red badge of real estate courage is to work long hours. That is a sign that you are doing something wrong. Maybe you are a control freak and can't delagate or possible have no boundaries. You can be successful and enjoy life so work hours are a choice.

Floating hours and I dont even seem to be "off", start at 7am and many times sending emails, well into the night.  That being said, now that I run my own PLLC not sure I could ever go back to working for someone else.

Most days: 6:30 am till 6:30 pm. Too much more than that and you are flirting with burnout.

Ten to seven. 

At eight I create the list of what must be done today. The first item on the list is always what will I do TODAY to get new business.

When the last item is checked off...the day is done.

Like magic everything unexpected seems to fit nicely with the confines of the list.

Without the list the tasks expand to occupy all available time.

That is how I got away from the 5 am to midnight shift.

We must take care, be aware of the shame root that wears exhaustion as a status symbol.  If you feel guilt twitches when you take time off, it is you that must take care.

Praful it sounds easy. On my walk I had 3 calls. I walk and talk so my schedule is not that accurate. But I did get my walk in. Next Saturday I'm walking a 6K.
