It is really about balance.
If you would rather work than clean and you can afford it - get a cleaner.
I really enjoy my job for example.
So for me - Skiing/Biking/time with family is better than working but I would rather work than scrub toilets.
I would much rather work for 15 min than clean for an hour, hence we have a cleaning lady (not to mention she is faster and does a better job than I do.)
On the other hand - I like working on my truck, my bikes, my skis, etc (in reasonable doses) - so I do those myself even though it would be more efficient for me to bill another hour and pay a mechanic.
The balance for me is living life while realizing that being poor (in debt or without a financial cushion for example) can be stressful. I am not about to become a back to the lander logger/hippy type. I grew up like that and it gets old. But each to their own.
