I used to have one of those. He left the firm over the summer cuz he was always working since everything was a fire drill cuz he was always behind. It took me a while to get to this point but I had to start telling him to just let me take things off his plate so he can focus on other things. I would assure him I would let him know if there were any questions or issues, but for people like that, it's hard to let things go.

I’m contemplating getting tested for ADHD because I’ve noticed some signs over the last few years that may be indicative of a diagnosis. I’m only seriously contemplating this because of a potential new job in the future that is much more intense and detail oriented than the work I currently do. I’ll need to pay much more attention, remain focused, listen actively, and ask very important questions in new role. I really want the job and the new pay hike. Is it worth it to see if I am ADHD?

Invest by MarketCap Crypto Strategy
Ok all letme know what you think of this strategy....its sad but the top 50 S&P stocks hav outperformed every single hedge fund out there managed by impressive Ivy League Managers. (I say lets hang these useless financial wizard banksters)..Follow this same line of thinking and apply to Cryptos...I suspect some survival of the fittest theory working here. ....All you have to do is invest in the top 10 crypto currencies by Market Cap and hold your position for short to mid term. Long term ie 5 to 10 years, I feel this market will mature and all the bubbles will deflate. To see top ten either go to Cryptomarketcap or go install the Crypto Tracker app from play store...As of 12/26/17... Top Cryptos by market cap:1. BTC. 2.ETH 3.Btc cash 4. Ripple xrp 5.LTC 6. Cardano/AdA 7. Iota 8.Dash 9.xem 10.Monero XMR

Interviewed for an industry position last week and asked my interviewers what my hours would look like. They answered "uhh 40?" with a confused look. I explained to them my crazy hours in PA and why I wanted to ask, and they just laughed and said that no overtime is expected. Either public accounting really screwed up my view on work hours, or this is just an abnormally relaxed company.
