I'm 29 and soon I won't be able to say I'm in a quarter life crisis because of my age. I've recently started a new job that is a huge step up in my career and will lead to even bigger opportunities if I do well for a year. It is also a large pay bump, from ~95k/yr to 130k/yr. But I was working 30-35 hrs a week at my old job; this new role will probably require me to work at least 50 hours a week. That probably doesn't sound like a lot but I'm in the car commuting 2.5-3 hours a day(traffic from San Francisco to South Bay is a bitch). As a result I leave for work at 7am and arrive home a little before 7pm. I'm exhausted and pass out between 10-11pm, wake up in the middle of the night when it's hard to go back to sleep for another hour, fall back asleep, wake up for work. I go to the gym only 2/3 days a week now instead of 5/6 and have been eating poorly(gorging on unhealthy snacks and ordering delivery instead of cooking). If I keep this up my healthy body will go to shit. Last year I set some things I wanted to achieve before I reached 30, one of them was career advancement(albeit not as much as this) but most of the goals were social. I know these goals are ultimately more important than my current job, but I have a habit of being addicted to money, power, etc. How do I find the solidarity to stay true to these goals? While writing this post I realized one thing I could do is take the company shuttle, if I'm working after hours and spending so much time in the car I can combine the 2 this way by working in the shuttle since it has WiFi. btw inb4 first world problems, call the waahmbulance, etc.
