I have been doing meditation to manage my anxiety but it still keep coming back. Why am I experiencing this? Shouldn't a new job give us hope and excitement? Anyone had the same experience? How did you overcome it? Is it too crazy to retract my resignation?

OP, my 5 cents below: - Its natural to feel some level of anxiety during transitional periods in life. - to curb some anxiety, you should know that some of what you had described sounds like imposter syndrome. Do some reading on it if you don’t know what it is. But what’s interesting is that consultants tend to have high prevalence of imposter syndrome. Firms look for this as it keeps you uncomfortable, and that is a strong motivator for type A people to perform. - this point I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. It sounds like you also associate your personal identity strongly with your career. Maybe you prefer it that way, but I challenge you to consider how much your personal identity is hinged on your career (and whether you think it’s a healthy balance given where you are in life)

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
