WWYD if one of your DRs said they're working today but has been unresponsive on emails and slack, only for you to see on social media that they're actually on holiday?

They're quite new on the job so I'm still navigating communication with them. I don't want to micromanage, but they do have major projects that they're responsible for. If they didn't have things due I'd be all for it no questions asked - I'm a big believer of shutting the laptop down and leaving early as long as the work is done

I'm new to consulting.

How often do you come across someone in your firm who makes you think "Wow, is that literally all they do and get paid the same as/more than me?"

Example:
Guy 1 - Consultant in charge of communication in a long term implementation project. Sends reminders/updates prepared by others, talks to CEO's assistant to ensure he is aware of emails sent and schedule meetings

Guy 2 - Acts as middle man between the firm's offshore team and people who want to use a proprietary tool

Failure is like digging; you must keep digging to find the treasure.

Our perspective has tremendous power. Use it to dig. Here's how:

- Accept the present situation first before deciding what to do. You can’t change the failure, but you can find your next steps from it.
- You can’t change others, but you have absolute power over yourself. That’s more than enough.
- Be intentional about the next attempt.
