Feeling that my brain has been on “auto pilot” mode for years. I am Principal in one of the top consulting firms, promoted on fast track basis, so have not been “lazy” and doing good at work. But everything feels the same, nothing gets me intellectually stimulated anymore, and now I feel like if the trend continues, I might lose my ability to adapt and learn new things altogether.

Looking for some career advice: fairly happy with my current situation at KPMG but the workload has been unusually high recently and likely will be for a while. Decent salary just not where I think I should/could be and raises/promotions are typically only once a year.

Any advice or experience to share?
