@Tuxhedoh $ range is different, and it ends up being more of a break, than a career change. some years on, some years off.
I spend more time with family & friends during the lower-key, potentially charitable work period.
I eventually get bored, and end up going back to the more demanding work. it ends up having benefits for both types of work, since I get a wider range of exposure to issues & ways of solving them.
@Tuxhedoh hum, good question. I don't know. lenders tend to be unhappy if you've been at a new job for less than a year. maybe see what a financial planner has to say about it? one can probably help you plan for this; I would think it's not much different from transitioning to retirement income.
