After I get enough sleep, exercise, practice, work, hang with my wife, attend to personal care there isn't much time left.

A piano teacher has to maintain and grow artistically over the course of their career. Or, you will soon no longer be in the game. Standards in the small town I used to live in where not so high. Here? They're high and the sky is the limit. So, I will meditate on this problem: grow artistically and stay healthy and happy.
