When you're starting out you are thinking about work and building your business, when you are successful you are thinking about work and maintaining the success of your business. As Joe Pryor said, it becomes a question of balance.

I'd not say it is more or less, it is different. Now I do not worry about small staff, at the beginning every little thing could course a stress. Now, after 10 years, most situations just repeat themselves.

It's all about working "On" your business instead of "In" your business. If you are a successful human being ( I know a very ambiguous word) I feel you are always thinking on how you can progress, learn and grow in not only your business but in life. So the question is mute to me--I'm always thinking about my "business"! We Realtors just do that.

When I started out, I was doing 14 hour days.  Often I'd be up at 8 and working until midnight or 2am on tech/website/marketing stuff.  Last year, I started shuting everything off by 7p (with some exceptions) and I ranked in the top 5% of all agents nationwide and in the top 10% of agents in my area (prior years I wasn't anywhere close to that).  I'd say I'm doing good and spending less time in/on the biz.

Hi Kevin,

I'm new to the busines, however, the more business I get, the more I want. Success breeds success and when I'm on a roll, I just keep on turning.

I don't know if it has changed from when I started until now. I suppose I'm able to shut my brain down a little better now because I've matured in the business and there is less to be concerned with.

I have been doing this for near 32 years now, and must say the first lesson was not being ready for my first recession and taking it for granted. A decade later when the next recession came, i was ready, i saved, i adjusted and knew what to expect. I think over all getting successful has taught me to work harder by working smarter. I see many in my market whose heads are too big for their britches
