    The balance is dictated by the work I do.

    OTR trucking has one essentially living in their truck. I have to log and account for every minute of the day so even when my log says I’m “Off Duty”, I’m still beholding to “Duty” or work. Where I can go and what I can do is dictated by work, because work is where I live and sleep and drive around in.

    So one has to learn to “Live life” within work.
    I would imagine I’m not alone in this. Scientists in remote locations, children camp workers, anthropologists, missionaries, astronauts etc would all experience the same to some degree.

    Only part of the world works a set shift, then goes home for the weekend and stat holidays! (Or gets monster overtime for volunteering to work them!)

      @griz A quote from the petstore owner / entrepreneur said “The good thing about owning your own business is that you can work any 18 hours out of the day you want.”

        There’s certainly greater freedom there.

        But also greater burdens at tax-time!

        @griz EVERYTHING is tax deductible… if you phrase it correctly >;-)

        And just hope the auditor doesn’t phrase it differently!

        @griz once you’re audited… and you pass, it’s not only unlikely for them to re-audit your company… it’s *actually* illegal (unless or until they change the law)!

        Interesting.

        That would seem to be a flaw; as in carte blanche to commit all kinds of tax crimes once one has been audited once.

        I believe in Canada they can call for a general audit, back to 7 years, as many times as they please. But more than once in 7 years (meaning it was NOT an entirely different period of audit) could be challenged as harassment.

        @griz not complete carte blanche. Just because they can’t audit you, doesn’t mean you don’t get fined if they examine the records and something isn’t filed properly, an expense is not right, etc…
