I begin this article with a powerful and important question: Are you happy with your quality of life? Notice I use the word "happy" rather than "satisfied." This is because you can be satisfied with your quality of life but not be happy. The point of quality of life is to live beyond satisfaction and to be happy. Life is about happiness and joy. Do you have peace?
I've spoken with colleagues who have made major life changes for better quality of life. Are the things you are doing leading towards quality of life? Are you stressed? Are you developing alopecia and losing your hair? Are you experiencing excessive changes in body weight (gain or loss)? Are you having indigestion, shortness of breath, or anxiety attacks? Are you developing poor habits (excessive drinking, spending, expressing obscenities)? Are you emotional (angry, sad, depressed)?
Quality of life matters! Anything that weighs negatively on it is not worth it. At the end of the day, there will always be someone who can do what you do. What cannot happen is getting another you! Life will run you into the ground if you let it. How you respond to it determines the quality of life you experience.
