So you don't feel that you owe your employer an eight-hour day?:whistling2:I admire people who are self employed. It takes a lot of sacrifice, responsibility, and long hours, that unfortunately, can have a less than desirable impact on family and life style needs. These are some of the main reasons I never became self employed. I like a set schedule provided by a good employer. And even though my day is nine hours long, I never really "work" to an extreme for more then six actual hours in the day. I've learned to pace myself in that day, but still make a commitment to my employer. That's the contract we have with each other. And at the end of the day, literally, I leave my work at work.
