>>1071082 I work 84 hour work weeks. It's not too bad. I work six weeks, get two off. It's pretty nice since it's good pay too. Company handles housing and food for those two weeks. I'm not a high position yet, but I have family elsewhere in the company and he gets his flights and stuff paid for too. Only problem is the company is stingy with raises since most people are pretty shit/shady workers and they just don't want to pay more money out.
Used to. Was working a government contract and the company didn't want to hire people. I'd work 70 to 80 hours a week, all hourly, with night time shift differential and made damn good money doing it. Easily bring home $4,000+ paychecks every two weeks. Did that for a little over a year.
I don't think I've ever worked an 80 hour week, but I've had to work 40 hours straight before.

I guess? I was still hourly and this particular client loves me forever. I got the next week off as comp time, too. >How did you find the drive? I didn't have a choice really
Depends what you consider work. I spent 10-20 hours researching stocks and work as VP for a small company for 65 hours a week (lots of downtime, but can get busy sometimes).
Biggest tip I have is to have a comfy sleep environment, eat healthy, and you can function on 6 hours of sleep. That being said I work every day in some capacity. Usually have 5-6 hours of free time a day (luckily I live 2 minutes from work).
Genetic engineering some bacteria Because I needed them for experiment during my PhD It didn't work out in the end, but such is the case with lots of research. It wasn't a bad decision, just an unlucky one. I wanted the experiments done, thought it would be good research. It's like going over to /b/ and asking how they find the drive to shitpost
Engineer within the oil/gas industry working for a consulting company.
Basically had to meet deadlines. Worked two weeks back to back of 115 hours both weeks. Into a 90 hour week. into 80 hours and then back to 90. A month and a half of suffering.
After deadline went back to 75-80 a week. Lasted about a year and a half before I got passed up for promotion. Fucked by the supervisors. Not worth it. Wrecked my relationship. My health. My happiness. Ruined my life. FUCK that shit.
>>1071477 Same thing basically, (I'm in electrical engeering) except I realized midway I'm going to be passed over. Scaled myself down to 40h a day, didn't give a fuck about deadlines or anything else. Coasted for three years like this (past the initial two where I worked like an animal), they've only getting ready to lay me off now. Kek.
