I'm on the project from hell and was promoted because if I could handle this, I could handle anything.

I don't thing god has anything to do with this stuff.

Agree with M1. The more BS you overcome the stronger your case !!

P3: thats on point. People respect those who can take a dumpster fire of a project, extinguish the flames, scrub off the soot and sell the remnants as the new iPhone X. "Easy" projects are a dime a dozen.

OP .. try to get into a tough project rather than an easy one.. Trust most managers work through shit before they are promoted.. this is called value proposition and leadership skills..

No. Much easier to take an easy project and do more reinvest. Also, unfortunately, in my experience, leadership here is not supportive all the time.
