Caring too much and working too hard


I leave the toilet seat up


David: Oh, great. I've been meaning to thank you by the way. You didn't lose a single customer during the merger, and you still managed to trim the budget? That is nice work. [Michael smiles] So, let me ask you a question right off the bat. What do you think are your greatest strengths as a manager?
Michael: Why don't I tell you what my greatest weaknesses are? I work too hard. I care too much. And sometimes I can be too invested in my job.
David: Okay. And your strengths?
Michael: Well, my weaknesses are actually... strengths.
David: Oh. Yes. Very good.
Michael: Thank you.
David: Very good.

Be honest. People can see right through your BS. Self awareness is really important.


Take on too much and risk burning out

Hi everyone. I'm a Product Designer looking for a new role with 1-2 YOE. I'm based in Ireland but I'm looking for remote roles.

I've been interviewing the past month for companies to no avail, and the feedback I get is that I matched well with the company/ticked all the boxes but that they decided to go with a more senior candidate. Most recently for an application I was the only candidate to make it through all the rounds. I was rejected.

Any advice or companies that I could apply to?

By what multiple did you improve (or lose) your skills year over year though your career? Wholly subjective, of course.

Format example:
Yr 0-1: x5 (first year learned way way more than from interning or whatever before)
Yr 1-2: x3.2 (still learned a ton, worth >3 of me from year before)
Yr 2-3: x1.2 (learned a little)
Yr 3-4: x0.6 (burnt out, worth like half of year prior)
