Yeah, that's a fairly normal reaction.
McKeown's writes about being successful in one's career by stripping away other non-essential parts of one's career pursuits.
Furthering my research on my Tiny Career idea is how I came across McKeown.
McKeown speaks about this cultural and economic drive for "more." Being "it" all and having "it" all, and mentally and physically killing ourselves with stress and bad habits to get there.
...And often, it's simply more for the sake of more. It isn't necessarily purposeful to the balance and purpose within our lives that will truly enrich us and help us gain the kind of success we're really after.
Here are a couple of McKeown's articles to read:
The Three-Word Problem that Can Destroy Your Life
The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
