WFH with a kid is making me less productive, so I end up working 30% longer hours to make up for it. But the longer I work, I get diminishing returns in productivity, so I have to work longer still. At this point, my mental stamina is just worn out. How do I fix this?

I think I deserve it. But stigma of offshor-ing American jobs (conservative media talking points) makes me sad. Thoughts? P.S. I make a lot of money so cheap resource rhetorics don’t apply to me.

How hard should you actually work in consulting? Obviously we have utilization requirements so we work long hours but I’m tired of giving 100% of my brain power. Is there any benefit of working harder? IMO there’s an incentive to work slower
