I bill 0.5x for pleasant dreams of on time PBCs. I bill 2x for nightmares

Yes, please use the nightmares code.

If I solved a previously outstanding issue then you bet. This has happened exactly 3 times in my career.

Yes

Just make sure to charge to the right code depending on the level of dream (i.e. dream within a dream) and to reduce by the amount of time that’s not actually passing in real life.

Time spent in limbo goes to G&A but we all knew that already.

No

That will be 8 hours 3-4 nights for me.

Also, ensure that you use the appropriate tax code based on dream location

Reminding me of that great time where I dreamt of a solve and woke up and wrote it down. Got done with my day’s work at 7am

No. What do you put as description?

PWc 1 i guess i can’t charge time when im telling my staff what to do everyday

Then I should charge 24/7

Yes

Only if it is a wet one! Wait no that’s PTO! Actually I eat that time, already got something out of it!!

Nightmares count?

Yes.

Yes, and make sure you multiply the dream time by 7x, as anyone who’s seen Inception knows reality passes at 7x the rate of your perceived dream time

A junior member in my team asks me a question about following up with a client proactively, and I love that. The problem is that when I tell her it’s a good idea she would ask me to do it.

It’s a weird dynamic and honestly I don’t feel great because it happens too much and she gets the praises for asking me. How do I bring this issue up? Do I go to my manager first?
