I went through it a while ago. I don’t know if there are any good answers to this. Just don’t over-rely on alcohol or weed.

I bought myself a classic cruiser motorcycle and consciously took time off for myself every now and then. I went around on road trips, shirt and long. I went into remote regions, connected with cultures I didn’t know existed, and it opened my eyes. There was so much more to life.

On one of those trips I lived with a nomadic family in the Himalayas in a remote, barren high altitude desert (they move around every season) for a few days. They were a family of four (two kids) that lived in nothing but a tent, and had a couple of Yaks and they were THE happiest people in the world. My misery felt pretty meaningless at that moment. That one experience is etched in my mind to this day and I think about it a lot when I’m stressing over all my problems.

Anyone in Private Client Services/T&E that can speak to how billable requirements are approached in BL for that practice area? Often hear billables are harder to come by than in, say, M&A or Lit.

Feeling a bit uncomfortable now as in my 8years career it is happening the first time that I am idle for a whole month, also there is no one to interact with. This whole atmosphere is now making me loose my confidence.
