I was looking at my schedule for the next few weeks and it is going to consist of some pretty difficult items. It requires a certain level of physical conditioning which means not everyone can do it. At the same time, I am expecting that the days could be pretty long. Financially, the compensation is extremely good of course due to the lack of people that can actually do the job. That did make me wonder. If you had a choice, would you rather work say three days a week where each day is extremely difficult or five days a week that is regular by normal standards? This is assuming you are compensated equally.
It reminded me of a person I knew who really wanted to buy his mom a house and so he got into things like construction at a very early age. While he didn’t have to work too many days, the days that he did work was extremely harsh on his body. He was able to help his mom buy the house quickly too as a result. In some ways I prefer to work less but harder days. I just feel the extra time can be very valuable as you work your way to worker smarter such as finding ways to leverage your time.
Especially if you are doing something that you love and enjoy it kind of turns into a situation where you want to spend all day on it.
