Mental prep for heading into PE from Consulting

Subscribe

Hey everyone. I'm a second year analyst at an MBB firm who's heading into an UMM fund PE shop. I'm wondering what the best way is to mentally prep for the lifestyle drop and the work? I'm working ~60 hours a week now with guarnteed weekends and feel that I'll be getting absolutely wrecked over the next few years while in PE.
