Survey time! Let’s say you put on weight during Covid - enough that clothes don’t fit but not so much that your BMI is too high or you’re very unhealthy. Would you buy a new wardrobe? Or would you try to lose the weight ASAP assuming everyone has to be back in office / client sites in July??

Buy new clothes. You don’t have to buy a full wardrobe but you need enough to feel comfortable and confident in your clothes. Weight loss takes time when done properly but you need clothing that fits now.

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
