You have to balance it against family, but work *may* also be a source of satisfaction by itself
If you are doing it just for money, it's logical and empirically asserted that after some point you'll prefer to work less
You have to find your optimal spot. It's kind of the efficient frontier.

Do people really only work for the money? Even in corporate jobs there is still the satisfaction of a job well done.
This week I built a sales pipeline model for one of our business units that had no visibility into its performance beyond how they were trending compared to past periods. Using live Salesforce data, my model was able to diagnose exactly how they were doing at each stage of the sales cycle (e.g. generating marketing leads, qualifying leads into sales opportunities, closing those opportunities, realizing revenue from those booked deals, realizing revenue from existing deals), and produced a forecast of what the BU could expect for the rest of the year if they kept up the pace. After the numbers were crunched, it turned out that the conventional wisdom on why the BU was underperforming was wrong, that the issue was actually at a different stage in the sales pipeline.
The results went in front of our Chief Product Officer today, and the insights were warmly received. Decisions were made, resources realigned, and now everyone is confident we’ve identified the root cause and are properly addressing it.
Just another week’s work.
