Just wow - That is really bad.

Actually kind of shocked that she took it so bad!

I think in the beginning you put a lot of hours in but as you get older and more experienced it really isn't sustainable. It's very importnat for your health and sanity to have at least an hour a day dedicated to yourself where you can relax TURN OFF your phone (difficult I know) and do something you enjoy.
It will benefit you in the long run!

When I first started the company it was 12 hr to 15 hr shifts. Now its about 5-6 hours a day, sometimes not even that.

Once you hire staff that know what they are doing your time will drop. It's important to have some free time to relax and enjoy.

Haha, I thought my 10 hours a day was pretty respectable before I came in here. Some of you guys are monsters.

When you start up, you have to put those hours in to succeed.

I hear that. For personal projects I'll sleep when I'm dead, which of course makes working a regular job a nightmare when I have to split the time up.

I think my work just tends to suffer when I don't give adequate time to sleeping or just reading a book or something every now and again though, the code I write at 5am is just nonsensical "get 'er done" kind of work compared to what I can put up after a hearty breakfast and a nice nap. But then again, that miracle breakthrough always seems to be just around the corner more exhausted you get.

No wonder I already have Reed Richards style gray hair at 30, haha.

I try at least 80 hours a week ~ 12/day at least.
I usually feel lazy if I end up working less than that.
