No. But I don't rely on my job to provide me with fulfilment.

Your job isn't there to fulfil you. It's there to make you money so you can do all the things you find fulfilling.

Develop a good work / life balance. (This can be hard in the tech industry but it can be done, just find a good company)

Work on your own stuff. Travel (If that's your thing! - not everybody has to like it, but I think you should try it at least once).

Many companies allow you to work remotely. One of my colleagues for instance bought a boat and sails round the med, he goes in to port on work days and connects with a 4G dongle.

Most importantly - Create your own meaning in life, don't rely on others (E.G employers) to provide it for you.
