Why do we choose to work in a profession where a missing punctuation mark feels like the end of the world? A partner gave me 8 minutes to edit a document and I forgot one bracket and I can’t stop thinking about it. I also told her it was missing so that she could fix it but she had already sent it to the client by that point, so now she also knows I screwed up. Is this as big of a deal as it feels?

Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on.

Received an offer from McKinsey & Company and am super stoked to join, but I’m getting quite criticized in my personal life for the decision mostly because of the public image of the firm. I get where they’re coming from, but figured most of the consulting industry was like this, not just McKinsey, and strategy work is what really interests me. Any tips on how to deal with it?

Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
