I get it. I really do.
You are motivated and driven to find success in your career, but you are also unhappy, stressed and on the brink of becoming burnt out. Somewhere between your desire to impress your boss, climb the corporate ladder, feed your family and build your resume by taking on every project you can at work, you have created a work life that is entirely too stressful for you.

You may not even enjoy working at your job anymore, and yet you spend almost every waking moment working or thinking about working.
The alternative may seem to be giving up on your dream of climbing the corporate ladder by letting your work commitments slide.

The fact is that you can work smarter rather than harder to find a higher level of professional success.
