When your company has a lot of work, who many hours/days each week do you work? I have been in situation where I have been working 7 days a week lately though weekends are not always full days(5-8 hrs). Weekdays, I have been going for 10 to 12 hours.

Are you able to turn your work off on weekends or do you find yourself working and or checking emails throughout the day? I've tried to slow down but I find myself preoccupied with work related thoughts unless I "take care of a few things"

I do find myself in that situation from time to time when a big project is happening but I realize that it is doing more harm than good in the long run. I just end up getting burnt out and don't have the same level of motivation or productivity as I normally do.

It's hard sometimes, but you just have to step away every now and again.

Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day, then it's "me time"

If you are working that much all the time, I would say hire more people. If you can't afford to, you may be underpricing your product. It makes no sense to work yourself into a state where you are resentful of your business and dread going to work.

Too many :)
