Take yourself seriously.
I once worked myself past burn-out.
When I woke up in the hospital, and the doctor explained that if I did this
again, I was going to die, I took HIM seriously. I was only 33.
No job is worth this.
Today, I have a home and family. I work far less hours for more money. I
have a full-time job, with colleagues I enjoy. Oh yeah, and friends.

Major danger signs: too tired to eat, too tired to sleep, too tired to care.

As a contractor, you are in charge of your career. You are your most
valuable asset. Manage you well.
Good luck, and take care!
