What is this 'beach' you speak of

@C1, it's quite glorious... toes in the sand, cold drink in my hand! (I type this from the very last row of the plane that I was able to get on last minute to hopefully get home tonight)

@OP what is this pipe dream we live in. Always hoping for this beach!

What can you actually do to salvage a project going down in flames? I’m a new manager, completely do not have the support I need, and it seems as though every single team/person our team relies on to get things done on time has dropped the ball. All the issues are now coming to us. I don’t have the experience to navigate this all alone, and I am not getting the necessary support as all of my managers are swamped with other (to them, more important) issues at the same client.

Best budgeting apps? I have tried every dollar before but it got confusing bc I pay most things on a credit card that I pay off each month, so when I paid the card, the app didn’t know how to categorize the payment coming out of my checking account in my budget (plus it was a lump sum of things). I think I need one that will also link to my credit cards.

It’s not that I am not capable (lots of great feedback from him and Partner/SM) -
