Re: Spot on. Couldn't agree more. Was called a Dinosaur
Spend time with your children/grand children.
Clean a beach.
Love your wife. (in a Big Nev kind of way).
Go to the pub.
Talk to people.
Think about the person you want to be rather than the one you think you should have been.
At the end of the day... the day was too short.
I left got a new job with less responsibilities and stress and now enjoy going into work as opposed to hating it.
I will now live 10 yrs longer.
get out asap, take as much as you can and enjoy your life. I hit 50 and suddenly found I was treated differently with all the talk being about 'new' thinking. I knew it was garbage, but also recognised that the world around me was changing and my bosses were happier dealing with the younger (more innocent) generation as opposed to me (battle hardened and more likely to call them out).
I changed jobs and a decade later, I think it was the making if me. I now have no pressure and can enjoy life far more ...... 15 hour days no way Jose, life is too short.
Work life balance is everything and at 57 you are not getting any younger .... do yourself a favour and stop fighting the inevitable would be my advice.
