I’m a new associate on a transformation project and am on multiple hours of calls each day. Most of the time have no idea what’s going on and often space out or go on phone. I know that’s bad but just am drained from all the new lingo. Also I’m supposed to take notes but they’re bad notes bc I’m confused most of the time. Any advice on how to be more engaged and/or take better notes?

I was working with a racist bigot client before covid hit and tonight I'm especially glad I don't have to fly in to see his stupid face in the morning. I'm glad none of us have to go into an office after nights like tonight.

Unpopular opinion for an SM: I enjoy the strategic, problem solving (whatever that may be: decks, implementation, etc) & team building parts of consulting but I absolutely hate the meetings & client-facing side. I just want to be the SME fixing stuff and don't want to deal with anything else.

I can't stop being angry and disappointed in myself. I'm on PTO and decided to take care a few of the household chores. I multi-task all of the time and can't help it. I forgot that I turned on the water to fill up the ultility sink in the basement and ran back upstairs to do something else. Well 2 hours later as I turn on the shower, I wonder why it's not getting hot. Then I remembered the basement. Obviously it overflowed and I had .25 inches of water on the floor (concrete) Cont
