I was GM and VP of a Fortune 500 company when my CH's started and think I know your frustrations, first you don't have friends but back stabbers and you are in a virtual prison, lots of travel, even your entertainment is spelled out for you, I think the first class travel and hotels, room service spoiled my wife, she loved those trips to Vegas, what the heck, she could shop and play while I was locked up in a broad room, with that ever fear of getting a CH, I quit and started my own engineering business, I am good at what I do, now I am working strictly with God given natural laws and I can chose for the most part, my working hours, still occasional trips, but only once or twice a year, nothing compared to the headaches of running a plant, and if I get a CH, can stop and submit to it, not making the money, but what the hell, would blow it just as fast as you made it, I enjoy my little canoe as opposed to that big power boat and I spend a lot more time with my kids and I can be far more creative in my work by taking a walk in the woods than being locked up in an office, just something to think about, can't be like a wounded animal in the corporate world, the vultures are waiting to pick you to the bone, observe your co-workers, are they really happy? Just something to think about, I don't have that trapped feeling anymore, and yes, I have since turned down some good offers, screw that life, when it's all over, the only thing you have left is your kids, and from what I have seen, problem children are a big part of the corporate world.
