Got feedback that I don't speak much during meeting but come in with mic drops every few minutes. I prefer not speaking when I feel others have covered everything that needed to be said and the direction we are taking is right.

Reiterate whatever others have said ... that’s how you get noticed in a relationship based business.

SC1, I agree. Although if you help people align on an idea, you are adding some level of value. Absolutely if you overdo it you will look stupid, but it’s a good starting point for people who are too quite

Every manager and every consultant is different, some are annoyed when you speak but add nothing to the conversation other managers like to hear feedback even if regurgitating what was just said. In consulting the best advice is to learn your manager's styles and preferences and adjust accordingly because everyone is different.

Remember the person giving you feedback is human too. Take their advice with a grain of salt, especially if it is uncorroborated.

Agree with the above. Also always have the last word. Even if it's a summary. That way you're always the last thing on people's mind.

Oh god, this advice is going to create an endless loop of people summarizing each other’s summaries

Definitely feel your pain, talking just for the sake of talking is why we end up wasting so much time in this business.

How does everybody handle clients that do not respect you and your judgment as an attorney? I am nearing the end of my first year as an associate, and I know I have SO much to learn still, but I work very closely with a partner mentor on everything I do to be sure I am not making rookie mistakes. I have a client that is demanding and indecisive (difficult combo) and keeps going back to the attorney that declined to take on her case and referred her to my firm. They are not communicating...

First day of 30mg vyvanse today. Had a rush of energy and hyperfocus (too much so) about 2-4 hours in, but had a complete crash 5hrs after taking the pill (just a wave of fatigue, felt very good after a quick 15min nap actually) and not sure if it had any effect after. Is this normal? Should I stick it out for a few days or is this a big sign that I’m not on the right meds/dose? Nervous to keep trialling this during the workday since a midday crash is not ideal. Appreciate any advice!

A client I am being put on a project for will require a drug test. I sometimes use marijuana (which is legal in my state), a little worried that I might fail a potential drug test, which have been temporarily suspended by the client but will return when their offices are re-opened. As part of onboarding you have to sign a document saying you will voluntarily comply with this random drug test with 1 day notice. Do I tell the partner I don’t want to sign the doc or give up weed for a project.
