“Why are you here?” I asked.  The Fortune 500 Executive responded, “Because I am burnt out and exhausted.”  “The company keeps reducing our department and adding more work load to those of us that aren’t cut.”  “I am working sixty to eighty hours a week.”  “I want to find out how soon I can quit/retire.”

What about retirement?”  I asked the small business owner.  “I don’t want to retire.  I love what I do.”  “I want to be financially independent and not have to work, but I want to keep working.”  “I feel alive and energized by my job.”
