I joined a startup with the "hustle" culture and moved to a new country and was clocking 60 hrs/week. Unfortunately they lost funding the month I joined and worked for a few months without pay. To compensate for the income loss, I freelanced over 20 hrs/week. End of four months I was burnt out because I was clocking 80hrs/week and was not fond of the work I was doing.

Fast-forward 1 year, I am working in an amazing place with some amazing folks in an amazing country and clocking 40 hrs/week and making a good living and seeing splendid growth. The key is to know when to call it quits.
