Work life balance is a touchy subject. People say they want to be successful and want their dreams to become a reality. But are only willing to work maybe 40 hours a week to make it happen. What if you doubled or tripled that work time and put in 80 or 120 hours of work in a week? Now you have essentially worked three weeks to an average persons one week...That simple action over a long period of time, think years here. Will get you closer to your dreams. Hoping, wishing and dreaming and putting in marginal work hours won't get you there though. Warning: going after your dreams will mean that you are going to give up a lot of things in your life. So ask yourself, what is more important? House of Cards marathons or your dreams?
