Congratulations, you have mastered the art of “better done than perfect”. Combine that with the wisdom to know when this is ok and when you really need to deliver closer to perfection and you can ride it all the way to partner.

Reading this has been so therapeutic. I have been making myself so anxious thinking that I can’t get myself to perform to my usual standard, but I guess we’re all collectively here

Everybody is burnt out and nobody cares

I do the same thing but send it straight to the client and everyone thinks I'm a high performer lol

Ha. Same. So happy for fb to confirm I’m not the only one who does this.

Am I your manager? I’m probably too busy taking an interview for an exit... keep up the good work!

Hahaha in reality nothing we do actually matters, someone needs to let these peons proud to work 70 hours know.

This. I’m dating a doctor, and his stories are humbling. I had to bite my tongue the other day when my client was complaining about spending 5 min on intros on new team members, while we were waiting for one of their leaders...if that’s what you’re spending time getting ruffled feathers about, your work doesn’t really matter.
