"...Demand will always outpace supply. Each of us in IT has to learn how to balance our personal needs for health, family, etc. with the demands of the job. Or, find another employer that is more balanced."
@jagibbons That is great advice and words of wisdom. I wish I had realized that 15 years ago, when I thought my career would actually amount to something. Sure I have achieved more than most but it pales in comparison to the years lost being loyal to a companies that had little to no intention of ever being loyal back.
That is a hard lesson to learn, but I finally learned ( even though it still goes against my values ) but what do values have to do with business ?
So it is not too late to do exactly as you state, find balance to fit it all in or find another company.
