I’m unable to focus on work and I keep dropping the ball on some projects. I hate to put this on my personal life but I’ve experienced three family deaths (including a parent) and a death of a good friend all within the last five months. I feel like I should have taken significant time off but I think now it’s too late with end of the year financials etc. Does anyone have any tips on how to bounce back up?

someone save this attorneys job. I hired an attorney with 5 years experience. I send her assignments and usually the law we're using. She never reads the breifs or memos we've prepared. Does her own research and usually misses the points. When I ask why she says she's intimidated by the memos etc and they're "hard". That drove me up a wall. We don't get paid to do easy things. Just because it's hard you give up? WTF.

I have this constant feeling of doing something better then what I am doing now. Bigger role, better pay, more growth, higher impact .... is what my brain is consumed with all the time. It’s not new, I have been feeling like this for as long as I remember ... even when I was in school. Although it has served me well so far career wise, but sometimes I feel that I missing out on my present life... does anyone feel like this too? I am not sure if this normal. I am in mid-40s, in case that matters.
