Brian Lovin asked on his blog:
I feel stuck in this place where I want to work more because I enjoy what I do, while also recognizing that there may be negative consequences if unchecked:
- creating unsustainable expectations
- leaving companies every 1-2 years
I wonder whether it’s good to work more even if you want to, or whether it’s better to self-impose work restrictions in the hopes of building sustainability (perhaps with an opportunity cost of faster career growth?).
As Brian asked, I thought I’d write down some of my thoughts on this.
