    What i mean is, this job can become routine. the acounts weekly, the same requests from the same people, even the the money your making, good or not. Do you kind of just go with the flow some times, or are you always looking to make extra money, and always looking for more work to do?

    Money is coming in pretty good for the last couple of weeks and I had that routine bug. Just yesterday and today, started thinking of the fall and winter, and started pushing up things i had been delaying so far. I'll been in full money mode soon...... what a change from working just to finish up your route and sit on the couch.

    if i could stay money motivated constantly...... wow.payup

    so all you guys are never ever like.......... " i have 30 house to cut today, gonna finish em and get home......."

    you claim that during the heat of the day, you're pushing for more, answering requests like trimming that you'll trim them right now, as opposed to maybe next week?

    there is never a time when you just want to finish your work and go home? Maybe I'm lazy, though i don't think so cuz i have always have work, and always am working......... or maybe i just want to spend time with my family.

    All work and no play makes johnny a dull boy.
    Selling is great as long as you don't stress yourself with too much work to handle.

    Nope I price high enough that I can and will enjoy life a little before I'm to old to do so. But I won't pass up an oppertunity if its right there either.
