I often see individuals in seniority kill themselves for career progress. Why is that?

    I had a close call. Major pain but ignored it. Nearly died. Work seemed important - people didn’t give a shit.

    You just don’t like to let people down so you work through it. Don’t!

      Don’t forget people who bought real estate 20+ years ago. It’s highly unlikely that real estate will grow as much for us.

    Actually - how is it possible to "kill someone for his or her career"? Assuming you don't compromise on sleep and some minimal physical activity. I work very little nowdays, but only because my job is utterly meaningless. Actually, I think it's not very good for mental state. I wouldn't mind working much more, as long as the work in meaningful.
