Burnout: To change careers or not change careers? That is the question



A year ago, Diana To was a senior product manager for a high-tech company. She had a big paycheck and a lucrative future.

But she felt that her work lacked meaning, so after several months of soul-searching, she quit.

She then spent six months living off savings and figuring out what to do next.

In 2006, To, 32, plans to pursue a career as a career coach, helping others to find their professional and personal paths. To's decision was inspired by her parents - a nurse and a teacher - and her faith, as well as professional career tests that gave her a sense of what types of jobs might suit her best.
