I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning.

Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.

Just joined a smaller firm who uses Paychex for their 401k provider.

Any other options I’m not thinking of?
