Hence, I am a full-time independent consultant and mentor.

This is identical to my past experience. I ran into all of these @ MSFT. For a moment, I thought maybe you worked there. :D

Another point is to focus on your personal relationships. Whatever feature team you work on or product that you release is pointless in the grand scheme of things. I often see posts like, "I'm so happy to be a part of this talented team. This is the feature that we shipped.". Really, it doesn't matter.

Often companies will lead you to believe that your work is important and it is making a difference. Unless your work is DIRECTLY saving lives, it is not that important. It is just a job. There's no point working longer than 7-8 hours.
