Some things to ponder.
Should you write a book or stick to articles?
But I think the main main thing is to remember academia is just a job. It’s a job with nice perks, but it’s still a job and if you got a TT job, chances are you have valuable skills that could transfer elsewhere. Remind yourself of this fact when things get to be stressful or when you’re at a faculty meeting where mountains are being made of molehills (because the stakes are so small).
