A buddy of mine from b-school recently went missing. I hadn’t heard from him in a while, but I know he was constantly stressed-out and overworked as an investment banker. Passed the message on to everyone who might have been in touch with him, and that’s all I figure I can do to help. Thinking that most cases like this don’t end well and can’t stop thinking about it.

Anyone dealt with something similar?

I am moving to a new state tomorrow for my new job and to be honest, I’m struggling and could use some encouragement. I’ve moved every 2-4 years of my life and every move is harder than the last. I can’t even sleep knowing I’m leaving friends behind even though I know this new job is amazing and will bring new and better opportunities for me. Just need a little encouragement and love right now.

How do you guys schedule your hours?
Say I need to hit 200 hours per month. Currently I take the amount of working days in a month (M-F) and divide it by 200 to get how many hours I need to bill per day. For example, May has 20 working days, so I need to bill 10hrs./day M-F.

I’ve done exactly that thus far and have been able to stick to a pretty consistent schedule. But I know a lot work on weekends. For instance, if I worked Saturdays too there are 25 billable days which means 8hrs/day.
