You are employed. You are extremely busy. In fact, you are harried, frazzled and often any semblance of a good work-life balance seems a very distant, almost quaint memory.
Additionally, you have seen your colleagues downsized. You have either gone without pay raises or the ones you have received have been less than hoped for. Promotions? Much slower in coming these days! You currently are doing the work of at least 1½ people, and quite probably even more.
