I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?

I’m working on a product that helps to make life on Slack more productive. The purpose of this Slackbot is to answer questions automatically using content that has already been shared in Slack. Any tips on how to promote a tool like this? It’s in the functional MVP stage and I’m looking for free users to provide feedback.
