Re: ER and Career Planning
You certainly don't want to be a mindless drone. You've got to be there for 8 or so hours 5 days a week so hopefully keep it as interesting as possible. That's not always possible as there are sometimes conflicting needs. You don't want to swing too much the other way and become the hard driving career person with no time for family, friends, and outside interests. Most of us are here wanting to FIRE (or already did so) because we want to spend more time with those aspects of life so shutting them off for the years leading to FIRE is not a good option. It's a balance and you've got to find the right point for yourself.
