I'm only 6.5 years into my career, which has largely been in consulting (though punctuated by two internal program management roles). I've always been the Type A, high achiever, whose initial aim was to get as far as I could as fast as I could. My reputation was built upon my achievements and successes, and my identity very tied to my work.
After suffering several stints of burnout, witnessing the sacrifices of those who rose the ranks, and building a rich personal life over the past few years (rediscovering hobbies, building new friendships, regaining my health), I no longer want to keep climbing. I just want to do a good enough job at a good enough job, and "hang out" comfortably / enjoy my well-rounded life. I'm not sure if this is continued burnout disguised as a lack of motivation, or if my ambitions really have changed. I'm not yet 30 so I feel like I'm calling it quits too early in my career, so of course have entered a cycle of guilt and overthinking. Interested to know if anyone else has had a similar experience.
