Doing well in your career doesn’t mean bending backwards for it. Doing “good enough” is key to long-term success ie not burning out - hard to learn for some at first since we are taught in school that you should put 200% in for everything

Build habits intentionally on day 1 of your career (max out 401k, routine time to work out). Much harder to put these in later in your career / break other routines that didn’t arise intentionally.

What about legal work is currently causing your mental health struggles? Mine’s the hours, which is not normally my issue. I billed 230 for June and July and am already at 145 for August. My ability to focus is getting worse by the day, so I’m working longer to bill the same hours and have had to pull a couple all nighters. I burst into tears this morning when a client changed plans and now wants a major project by end of month, on top of my other deadlines next week... I just want to sleep.
