I work in an industry that idolizes unhealthy productivity; staying up all night pounding Red Bull and Adderall, crafting that next billion-dollar unicorn... I love my career as a software developer and open-source maintainer. It's exciting, creative, and challenging. When presented with my wife's health crisis, it became clear to me that the workaholic zeitgeist in the industry wasn't for me. I was letting my career overshadow other important things in my life: family, friends, personal health. I've been actively trying to correct this imbalance, replacing workaholic tendencies with: better scheduling, healthier living, and more self reflection about what's actually driving me to work.
