Anyone else find it really hard to have a meaningful conversation with colleagues? Whenever conversations go deeper than work, sports and maybe politics...everyone is either disinterested or clueless.

Sometimes seems like it’s trying to burst out of us. We need leaders. Real leaders, not just the promotion ladder. If we subscribe to the idea that we’re the best and brightest, we MUST engage with deep and meaningful ideas, community, relationships, spirituality. For the good of society and the fate of the world. It is dangerous when carrying the financial system and engaging our humanity are things that cannot coexist

Agree with Lazard 1 - but the key issue is that by spending most of our awake time working, I find very difficult to get involved in other activities.

On that topic, ‘Young money’ is interesting

Got the same issue. But it was different in my previous company so I’m guessing it just depends on who you work with

Hello Magic Fingers, Looking for your quick suggestions - how to deal with the Trace errors? I am getting trace errors on certain cells whenever I download any datasets out of JDE.
