Last week I had this weird experience where I just didn’t feel like myself, and felt like I was on autopilot. I walked back to the hotel from the office but don’t really remember walking home (completely sober). I feel like I’m getting red flags that I need to take care of myself but also feel like I need to see this project to the end for my team and myself especially right around the end of performance year.

I’ve been there. Happy to talk you through it.

Block out some PTO or take sick leave. You need a minimum of 2 solid weeks to get your sanity back. Sorry that you’re going thru this. Don’t fret your performance in the last 3 weeks and don’t be too hard on yourself. Do the bare minimum and make your own health and sanity the priority. Sending good vibes your way!

Opinions Wanted My Dad passed away recently and my Mom finally heard back on the value of his Deloitte pension. Around 350k. Combined with life insurance and retirement this puts my Mom in a much more comfortable position than she was expecting and mentioned she wants to use some of the money to pay down my siblings and my remaining student loan debt as she holds a lot of guilt that we had to take loans at all. Between 25-50k for each of us. Would you take the money?

I am just starting year 4 as an associate doing 100% med mal defense trial work. I know our insurance guidelines require partners to do a lot with so much $$$ on the line, but in 3+ years, I have only: attended 36 depos (12/yr or 1/mo) of those 36, I: noticed 3 (1/yr) and presented 3 (1/yr) I have attended 1 mediation and tried 1 small claims “trial” I feel like I am losing my attorney skills, rather than improving them. Can I expect more opportunities or do I need to make a switch?

Am I the only one who feels all these people claiming to stand with Simone Biles is questionable? Mental health matters but if your team lead peaced out on you in the middle of a deadline, new business pitch, campaign launch, etc. you’d be singing a different tune. If Brady peaced out in the Super Bowl, would we sympathize? If Bron peaced out during the NBA finals, would we sympathize? The answer is likely no.
