re: How much? Work vs. Reward

oh wow.. that leaves it open.

watch how many write this formula
$1000 pm = 1 hr work,

Seriously its very subjective. if it still involved working with water toys, i would be happy to do more hours for less money. But if it involved a 'real job' I would want more $$$ and less hours obviously.

In reality,if i could earn a grand a month, I would be happy at about 20 hours of realy life work.

Re: How Much ? Work vs Reward . . .

A good job I can do for free. A **** job I would not touch. Then there is the wast area of in-between.

All depends on how hard pressed I am too. In general, it is nice when one hour of work buys us something realistic - a day at the dock, a new hat, a dinner, etc..
