I was with an ad who didn't do anything but critique. I may not be able to design but I ditched him and now I do both jobs until something needs to be designed. Then I find a capable AD. Helped my eye for art direction quite a bit.

Caught up today with college BFF. We are both highly educated, historically super ambitious/driven, have “impressive jobs.” But we are both now mid 30s with young kids and completely demotivated at work despite having interesting jobs. Is this a phase? Is this “natural”? Is it because of too much sleep deprivation from babies? Anyone experienced this but got out of the rut? I want to feel excited about work again, not just going thru the motions for a paycheck
