Loved the article and glad to have the information from another point of view. I have been in the field for over 30 years and have seen people come and go. Many left early and went into other lines of work. Burn out was a problem and still is.
As professionals we need to realize that a shooting star is bright and folks see it but is short lived. And remember that it is better to take time now rather then meds later.
Yes I have worked more the 40/week and been on call, developed business critical, realtime projects in very demanding situations, and through all that I have learned if I do not take the time I need for myself and my family then I have nothing to give to any one.
After all this maybe I should take the rest of the day off.
