I heard this as a rule for consulting and contracting, but
I suspect it applies to technically skilled employment too:

There are three things everyone wants:

money, the corner office, fast computer, stock options, ...

feeling that you're doing good work, accomplishing something,
building a worthwhile product, ...

retaining sanity, not burning out and being hauled away
gibbering, or dying early of an excess of 70-hour weeks

If you're good at it, you can have any two.
