Do an activity you know you have been needing to do (veg out, work out, play games, read a book, spend time with loved ones). After, make a list of where you want to be in a years time. Focus on one of them and slowly make your way down the list. I find this helps people refocus on what is important for them outside of school, get some personal needs met, and feel less burn out. When we can focus and give purpose to the things that are important to us, we tend to make time for them rather than dismiss them.

I’m a 6th year associate looking into pursuing an LLM in Tax through an online program (with my firm’s blessing). I will continue to work while I am taking these courses, but curious if anyone has any guidance about how many hours per week I should expect to be spending on classes and studying? The programs I’m looking at generally suggest taking 1-2 classes per semester.

How do you deal with a group of colleagues who’s committed to misunderstanding you? There was old project where I was standing my ground (politely) a dissent, but my manager took offense.. (cont’d)

It feels weird posting a LinkedIn post in FishBowl, but I found this post from Jamal very insightful. I would have just copied the text, but I want to give him credit.

I’m in a position that I don’t enjoy and looking to first try an internal move or move to another agency. However, I need to wait at least another 8 months. Any thoughts on how I can make time fly by?

Current B4 senior getting promo’d to manager. Have an offer to join a smaller firm (BDO, Grant Thornton, etc) as a Senior consultant for 1 year with expectation that I’d promo to manager next year. New salary would be higher even as a senior vs what I’d make as B4 manager. New B4 salary would be 105k. New salary trajectory is 110k this year to 120+ next year. What do I give up by leaving B4?

Yes, workplace trauma is a thing. Understudied, misunderstood, and detrimental.
