You can’t imagine the things I see as a user story these days 🤪

My last project had no defined personas. And instead of using the story to define a business scenario, they just built it to point out config. So like "As a *user of this tool*, I want the stage of my opportunity to change when I do xyz, so that the opportunity matches the tool" and then it's just a flow that updates the stage triggered by criteria xyz 😭

You ever feel like you're just failing to excel in consulting? Today and yesterday have been really hard to tap into any discipline to push past whatever brain fog/lack of motivation is preventing me from making progress on this project. I don't know if I'm just tapped out or not cut out for this type of intensity, but I'm 1.5 yrs into consulting after working in industry and this seems to happen too often. I just don't feel like I'm as good as my peers and don't know that I can get there.
