How Much Time Do You Spend Working?

Man with a clock for a headThink about a typical week — do you know how much of your life you spend working? Consider these time factors: 

  • Getting ready to go 
  • Traveling
  • Working (possibly through breaks)
  • Traveling home 
  • Checking emails or working at home in the evening
  • Thinking about work

Not only does working take up a lot of your time, but unless you are self-employed, how much you make for the work you do can feel out of your control. There are other aspects of working that you can control to help you achieve financial well-being and better enjoy the work you do.

This course will help you make purposeful employment decisions about the type of work you do, where you work, the benefits you get from working and how to put yourself into the best financial position from working.
