    I agree with this. I think that for career people it comes with experience. Even the staunchest ISTJ I know can't control her schedule as she wishes because the business we're in doesn't allow it. However, coworkers with, let's say, 8 years of experience and up usually have the capacity to do their work efficiently and plan ahead. I only have three years so I'm still in the one or the other phase, although I am getting better at it.

    Yeah, I'd like to know, there are so many hobbies I would like to pursue but where's the time?

    I tend to do a reward system for myself a lot.. "I can play my game if I x first!" When it comes to studying, I play between paragraphs.. Read an article after I read a page of study text, rinse, repeat. It takes me wicked long to study this way, but I don't feel overwhelmed at all either.

    Normally though, I do a pretty good job of balancing everything. I play a lot, but I work a lot. I don't feel overwhelmed normally.. every so often I have days where the work was too much too fast for me.. or days where I feel like there's nothing that can be done even though I wish to be productive. But I'd claim myself fairly balanced.

Of course, I feel burned out after this and can't wait until I get some free time, and then when I do, I fully immerse myself into fun things and forget all about work until I'm like "Holy crap, I'm so behind on work! Time to rush to catch up!" This is not good. I just want to learn how to balance the two like a normal person does! Any advice would be appreciated.
    I realize this sounds simplistic but, you make time for it just like anything else that's important to you. It's more about time management than not enjoying or enjoying play time.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    My favorite sweater says " all play no work"

    I got it cause I am a solid believer in " all work............... then play"

    I thought it was funny... My sense of humour is lame. lol

    I don't have plausible suggestions for balancing the two. I have a hard time prioritizing when work is involved. I'm a workaholic-- completely obsessed.

    Luckily I'm in school right now, and can't work on a student visa ><
