I agree wholeheartedly. I'm 43 and have decided I'd be much happier as a teacher. When I tell people I'm going to give up my job as a software project manager, go back to school, and teach when my 401K is sufficiently built up, they think I'm nuts. Taking a 60% cut in salary makes no sense to them; they'd rather toil on for the "gold" whether they like their jobs or not.
