Lately, I have become somewhat fixated on reading/learning about what is possibly the impending collapse of society. All of these issues with rapid climate change (the fires, floods, irregularly strong storms), COVID, rejection of science, rising political divisions, increased extremist ideals discussed online, economic collapse of ME nations, supply chain/labor shortages, etc, seem to indicate this is going to happen much sooner than most may have thought. I have found it hard to focus (cont.)

It seems pretty common-place to not leverage offers from outside firms with your existing firm in this industry, and instead simply give your two weeks and move on. It is damn expensive to replace associates! Why is it the case that we don’t leverage for ourselves more often?
