I am a big believer that there is a right job for everyone at the right time. If you think it's impacting your family- choose your family. I stayed in a go nowhere job for 5 years when my daughter was first born to focus on my family. Took a job in consulting. Now I have a second child and they want me home more. I am planning to reintegrate to industry. Never mistake someone else's idea of success for your own

@A3- ugh yea I did. I have a great career, I have a wonderful relationship, I love my parents I'm super proud of all my dad did for me. I'm telling you from the point of view from that kid, I never meant to hurt his feelings and I cherished every weekend I spent with my dad bc he wasn't home during the week. Honestly just because you may feel guilty as long as you're involved via phone and weekends I can tell you as that kid, it's not like a long lasting impression you're not there.

"Where's daddy?", I asked. "At work.", she said. Goodbye consulting, I'm done. Some things are just more important.

Talked to my wife and we're in agreement. My annual bonus gets paid out on the 31st and my resignation will be submitted the following Monday. My daughter is 3 so this can be fixed. What a wake up call.

I hear you OP... The other Sunday I was putting my son to bed. I told him I had to go and would come back on Thursday. He asked if I was mad at him. He's almost 3. So yeah, very tough to deal with...

If I did things based on my kids drawings or perspective... I'd not work and be rich. Kids have no perspective other than their self-centric view.

I respect the OPs post, but may I suggest ensuring you look around and find a job you're excited about prior to just quitting.
