a friend forwarded this to me the other day.

This is definately how I felt when i stopped working at MSP’s and moved into public sector work. I had similar discussions with my family and friends at the time. A friend who also changed roles expressed similar sentiments along the line of

“I’ve been given 2 weeks to do something I’d have 2 days to do before…”

I’d say I still struggle with it on occasion. The line between doing good work you can feel proud of, overworking yourself and eventually that circling round to burnout is so easy to drive right past before you notice.
