I am turning 30 this month and looking back now I realize how little of my goals I have achieved (professionally and personally)
I make around $150k a year, hardly enough to make a decent living in Manhattan. Not in IBD but in a similar role.
In a good really work week, I have barely enough time to get some sleep. Otherwise, I have no social life and live a sleep deprived existence.
I have had 2 bosses since undergrad - one abusive like hell, the other who works everyone to death (with super high expectations and little money).
I have always heard stories about those who made it by age 30, but for someone like I am coming to the realization that I might never reach my goals.
I was wondering if I am being too negative or if it is totally normal for people to be struggling even at this age?
