I haven’t been interested in a project I’ve worked on in years and my management is absolutely terrible. But I’m not in a slump because work does not define me.

You need to find some source of fulfillment in your life. Work ain’t it. The modern workplace is engineered to be as painful and unbearable as possible. We should aim to get in, get out, and get on with the bills paid and the maximum amount of time available for things that really matter in life.

Do you feel your reputation would be affected when this behavior comes to light? Inevitably it will when he bankrupts the company one day.

I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts. At the end of the episode, an ad comes on for a former client. They were promoting an idea I had almost two years and one agency ago using the idea’s original name. So, I look it up. The words used to describe it are basically the words I wrote to sell it. They even got the talent we proposed in the initial decks to sign on. The big difference is the medium it’s delivered in. So, claim it or let it go? FWIW: It won’t make my book any better.

Just FYI on State bar ethical hotlines and LAP- For new attorneys, as a lawyer the only two things you have is a license and reputation and the wrong boss or client can make you lose both. Your state bar has resources. Asked to do something unethical, being so overloaded that you can’t sleep, feel like all you can do is push paper/shortcuts to meet other client demands? Call the ethics hotline for help. Trouble with an addiction or mental health? You can call your lawyers assistance program.
