I didn’t make $200k until 26 like a loser. I’ll strive to do better in my next life.

Same!

You don’t have to be exceptional to make 200k, you just have to get into a role that pays that. As I’m sure you’re aware, not every 25yo consultant pulling in that dough is exceptional.

Never forget, they gave Chandler Parsons $25m/year.

Right place right time.

So you’re not making 200k at 25

I never said this problem was limited to consulting. It's just especially bad in consulting.

But am I behind?

Only 200k @ 25? What am I, behind my peers?

Amen. Comparison is the thief of joy and gratitude.
