I try to be very tactical once I leave the office. 1)what's my first meeting/deadline tomorrow? Am I ready? 2) what's after that? What's my first break to go heads down again? Am I prepped for everything before then? Break stuff into concrete blocks of work. Or time box it. "I'm going to work for 45 mins, then order room service, then work til it gets here. After I eat, 30 more minutes. Then I need to sleep" or whatever, but impose deadlines on yourself.

Don't. Do anything but look at a screen (phone, laptop, tv). Get a full night's sleep. This will increase your productivity the next day so much you won't have to work back at the hotel. Yes, I do get good performance reviews.

A client based in Japan had sent us a list of some Japanese texts and their English translations at our request which we needed. SM: Copy all the Japanese texts and their translations from document that client sent into a new document and send it back to client (to whom it came from) and ask them if they are correct. Me: Why are we doing that? SM: Just to ensure that we have validation in an email that client sent these translations to us. Me: Facepalm 🤦🏻‍♂️

What’s the best way to navigate my SO getting excessively drunk to the point where there’s little awareness and he’s close to passing out? I’ve voiced my concerns and we always have productive convos but I still see a pattern and don’t want to feel like a broken record by saying I dislike it. Ex - he’s at a bachelor trip and I ask that he let me know when he makes it back to the hotel at night. It doesn’t happen each night and I gently remind him which results in apologies and saying he’ll… ctd.

I am writing this here because I hope that maybe a woman can understand where I am coming from and what I should do. I joined Accenture January 2020 as a level 11, long story short, I talked to my CC about mid year promotion since January as well as my director. I learned on Friday I’m not up for promotion. My CC tells me because he didn’t see any client input feedback in the PA tool so he didn’t enter anything for promotion. My director tells me he thought I started with Accenture January 2021
