  • Have a day job: No

    Average time spent developing in a week: 72 hours (12 hours a day, from 12pm to 12am with a day off (Sunday) - this is essentially my day job and passion in one, so I spend as much time as I can on it!)

  • Fimbul I could care less what you believe. he asked i responded. Your welcome to ask my wife. An its right at 18 hrs a day and that include sales, marketing, developing, finances, etc.

  • Fimbul I could care less what you believe. he asked i responded. Your welcome to ask my wife. An its right at 18 hrs a day and that include sales, marketing, developing, finances, etc.

    So you work 18hrs every day, no weekends, with only 6 hours of sleep per day, not counting commute time?

    Also, you stated that you spend 75 hours per week developing with construct 2, which is more work than everyone else in the thread spends with their full-time jobs. You also said you're the CEO and work with sales, marketing, developing, finances (which you presumably do in the remaining 47hrs of the week). You also have a wife (so either you spend zero time with her, you don't need to sleep, or she works with you).

    If you truly do work these hours, stop. This is unhealthy. You're [literally] killing yourself.

  • i do, i have since october 2012, no commute, work out of the house as stated in another thread and use 5 developers out of india when i need to contract work out via oDesk. I'll back-off when I don't have to work that much to feed the family, Plus, I am passionate about it and do not want to go back to work for another company. i turn down 2-3 jobs a month. And that an average of what I do (source my project management spreadsheet) over the last 2 years. I do take some time off once in while. but I do only sleep 6 hours a day and im fine with it because I'm doing something I love and the time just flies by. Pisses the wife off most the time. Anyway I'm done with this topic, Im working on a high scores tutorial for another member.

    I used to work 20 hours a day. You going to call be a liar too?

    Top execs work these hours - I know many. Who are you to say otherwise.

    @nlakald says he is a CEO/Lead Developer, that tells me that 18+ hours is completely believable.

    If you are going to call someone a liar, best have supporting facts to back your accusation. Assumptions count for naught. Best to say nothing.
