Confessions

I’ve been in a fog lately due to being sick/tired and made a simple error today and haven’t been connecting the dots as I usually do. My team has noticed. What should I do? I’m beating myself up.

Two things you you should do from here - Learn from the errors/mistakes and catch them before they happen again. If it keeps happening, that's when the pattern is more evident and you begin to get the error prone rep. Take care of yourself. You're not doing anyone any favors by coming in sick or running yourself ragged

Stop worrying about it. You’re doing great! Get yourself some rest and get back to doing the great work you know you can do!

Just let it go. We all make mistakes. Especially when we’re sick and should be at home sleeping.

I am working full-time and trying to figure out how to best prepare. I really want to work at McKinsey, and of that doesn’t work I will be lucky to do BCG. But I am focusing on McKinsey since that is first. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am using Rocket blocks, my math is not great I rely on excel too much.
