Ben there done that.
I used to earn 60~100k as DBA. but I worked all hours and have actually spent nearlly 72 hrs on the phone sorting out problems in a far off country.
Not for me thanks. Mortgage paid and gone, but then the kids have grown up and I missed them growing up .
My missus said to me one day, 'Lisa has got here bronze'
I said what are you going on about?
'In tap' she said.
I said 'When did Lisa take up tap'?
six months ago!!!!!
That was it time to change jobs.
Now I work five mins from home, have all (bar 2 wks) school hols and can enjoy life.
The only dif to me it has made financially is I can't waste money on stuff I don't need.
We now live WITHIN our means.
As the old priest said - he'd never met anyone on their deathbed who wished they had spent more time at work...
