I think yes on the margins. Our home office staffing model has a not immaterial impact on the volume of travel which in non covid times helps make life more manageable. To bed clear, WLB is not good though.

Been having trouble moving on since girlfriend ended relationship 3 weeks ago after 2+ years of dating. Before ending it she came over 3 weeks prior to basically give me a chance to work things out and we had a good discussion but then I went back into our routine and didn’t really fight for it or have serious follow up convos that we needed. Now I just have so many regrets that I let her go. I know we still love each other and left on “good” terms but can’t forgive myself for my lack of action.

I’ve spent a decade in a government contract niche growing from an entry level role to senior leadership. It’s no longer fulfilling work to me.
