      Bullshit. I know it isn't because I know I don't have it.

    If you feel like you need to make those sacrifices you should find a new job

      It's never the job. It's the part of us that can't or won't say no.

    Attend a funeral to be reminded of your priorities.

    *shrug. I try to just be slightly above average and feel pretty fulfilled with 2 outta 3. Then again -- I guess that's not hustling 😅

    You choose your own priorities and you’ve decided yours. I quit a job for primarily life priorities and am much happier with my new WLB.

      85k base. I’m yet to see what is actually paid in my new bonus scheme, potentially 8-21k.

      Some context, this is the SE too. I wouldn’t want to nose dive to 85k in the Bay.

      I'm at my dream job. It's just what it took to get here.

      But I get your point, bro. *hands you a piss bottle*

    ^this, somehow following your passions and fulfilling your potential is considered unfulfilling, id argue it is when its for the wrong reasons. Go sit on a beach for a week and see how fullfilled u are
