I did it to myself but I have been (deservedly) scolded no less than 3 times this week for dropping the ball/not communicating enough about being behind and I am sad. Do not say yes to that “cool new deal” or even that “easy light lift” when you know you don’t have time for it, 🐠 fam.

Don’t be too hard on yourself (but I know how you feel/would feel the same way, too). At my firm, you usually aren’t given the option of saying no to new work…at least at the moment, but I always try my hardest to push back if I can

Fifth year here…starting to wonder what year an associate should be given more responsibility on matters. It seems as though I’m doing a lot of more “junior” stuff and am being cut out of a lot of the meat of matters (not cc’d on any emails, only given discreet assignments without context, etc.). FWIW, I am the second most junior in the group (bankruptcy)—but I’m wondering how does professional growth happen if you’re always the “junior” on a matter?
