Default Could you work 80-100 hours a week?

Assume it would be the job you're currently doing, OR assume it would be what your studying for (eg if your studying law and want to be a lawyer, assume you would be working these hours as a lawyer).

I've recently been talking about these kind of things on other forums and with some friends. There are plenty of people in the financial sector here in Toronto who make a lot of money, six figures. But to attain those numbers? Those aforementioned 80-100 hour work weeks (along with stringent education requirements, presumably CFA and such).

I have ambitions for sure, but i don't enjoy what i study (finance) enough to work those crazy hours. I would be much, much more content doing a 9-5er at say, a bank, then working at an investment firm with double the hours (and salary). I'd gladly take the smaller salary for the peace of mind. I would burn out way too quick.

Of course if i HAD to do it, as in i had no other choice, i would do the best i could. But just talking hypotheticals here.

Would you/could you work 80-100 hours a week for a consistent period of time for your career?

I used to put in 60hrs a week for my old job at one point, worst **** ever.

Did it for 2.5 months and when school started I had a breakdown and they slashed my hours by almost half.

The last school I was in for my job had me working easily 80 hours a week, and it was pretty brutal. Manageable for half a year of schooling in order to get trained, but I don't think I'd want to do it on a consistent basis. You'd have to really have a job where you loved the work and had great people to work with to keep sane.

I'd do 60 or so if it was a sweet job that would set me up well for the future. But 80-100? **** that. There are more things in life than just work. Even if you make bank, you'd have no time or energy to reap the benefits.

Not to get too personal, but did you work like 16 hours a day for 5 days, or was it spread throughout 6-7 days?

I did 60-70 hours a week at my last job, but it wasn't strenuous work and it was mostly from home with a few "business" trips every once in a while. I dunno how easy it would be to handle that if it was a stressful type job.

People that do investment banking don't work 80 hour weeks because they love it, they do it because they wanna get rich. And for the most part, it's a young person's game. You get in and do it for a few years and either get promoted or bail after you've made the amount of money you wanted.

During football and/or softball season when I am coaching, I put in some 60/70 hour weeks and by Saturday I a dragging ass. I do it because I love it, but when the season ends, I'm not always "sad to see it go". If I were at a desk for most of the 80/100, perhaps I could do it, but I had better love the hell out of what I am doing.

I did 70-80 weeks for a few years, with my off weeks being 60.

I was doing stuff I liked, but it was insanely complex work (designing part of a high speed processor). It burnt me out. Anxiety attacks and whatnot.

I changed careers and took a huge paycut for awhile. But I'm enjoying my work and I'm happy.

Btw, medical residents work 80-100 hour weeks. One of my friends is a neurosurgeon resident and she has to do that for six years. It's kind of a dumb hazing like system, where hospitals abuse the "trainees" with insane hours and low pay. These residents often make life or death decisions with no sleep.messed up.

7 days most of the time, 6 if I could afford to take one of the weekend days off. The hours were actually 7-4 5 days a week, but the rest of the studying outside of class had to be in the building, so we'd end up clocked in 75-85 hours most weeks.

What I'm doing now, no, my job is too taxing physically but if I were doing something less active I think I'm young enough to do it. For how long? I'm not sure. Would really depend on the money.

I do. Work, on average, 80 hours per week. Sometimes up to 100 sometimes less. M-F generally is 8 am to 12 am and then often I'll have a few hours of work from home on the weekend to clear out my emails. I'm compensated well (about $150k+bonus) for someone who is in their mid- to late-twenties but it is taxing for sure on your physical and emotional well being.

Not for very long. I have too much going on. If I were single and unattached, I'd consider doing that for a few years to amass some wealth. But not more than a couple years at the most. Even then I think I'd always question whether losing a few years of my life was worth it. As a family man I would not even consider working those hours.

I probably did about 80 hours a week as part of getting my degree. You take two three hour classes in the summer on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Then factoring in the class work for that class it's about 25+ hours a week. Then I worked 30 hours a week in addition to that. Probably was right about at 80 hours a week.

It was absolutely god awful. I could never sustain that long term. People who do it just for the sake of money are insane.

I remember working 48 hours once. It was terrible.

Could I do it? Probably, but at no point would I want to.

I make plenty of money and put in max 36 hours a week, working long hours is for suckers.
