More and more it seems like there is always something to do for work.

There are very few lines of work anymore where sitting idle is acceptable for success. Most of us work like crazy to stay ahead of the game, be competitive and hopefully win.

Sometimes that means more than 9-5.

I am a family guy. I love spending time with my wife and kids but they tend to get frustrated with me at times. I care about my job a lot and they know that. Most evenings when I get home I eat dinner and watch TV with them while working with my laptop on my lap.

I am with them doing what they are doing but they feel like I am too consumed at times and they may be right.

It's important to find a happy balance between the two and I think I need to do a better job at that.

Do you work too much?
