I'm on the ICE track, as I am in the process of freezing investments and freezing assets. I'm meeting someone on the FIRE track tomorrow at the recording studio, so we can record a song of ice and fire.

I feel like the usual consulting exit messaging to new employers used to be “need to get off the road”. For those exiting during the pandemic, how are you phrasing the decision to exit to potential employers? My concern with saying something like “need improved work-life balance” is that it equates to “I want to work less hard” given that many companies allow remote work right now which blurs the hours of operation. Am I overthinking this?
