Not sure if anyone else deals with this, but I feel so inferior compared to my friends at medical school or those who went to Ivy post grads.

The problem is I’ve never really been good at setting attainable goals and often get discouraged and feel as though I can never be “the high achiever”

I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
