I recently quit my job. OMG. I’ve been working for the same company for over ten years and yes, I’ve gotten to do amazing things. My career was on the fast track and I was an expert in my field. And then, through a variety of events, I realized that you can’t have it all. If you satisfy your job your family suffers and when you do focus on your family the to do list at works gets bigger than you are.
I need a job that isn’t so intense, so consuming and one that I don’t have to work 70+ hours a week (often in the middle of the night in order to feel like I’m giving “family time” to family during the daylight hours.
