What’s the running man about?

Book about a guy who is basically running for his life while he’s hunted for sport and the nation watches. Stephen King wrote it under the pen name Richard Bachman. It’s from the early 80s and clearly ahead of its time.

What. What show is this? That sounds amazing.

At Deloitte now. laid off last year while on medical leave. Landed a new job with the help of a senior mentor and vouched for me not knowing my medical limitations. I just had to take sick leave again on the first project out of the gate. Dr is recommending 40 hours a week which will not fit the requirements of my director role. I feel like I need to switch roles to a non client facing role to be realistic in my health limitations. How do I make the switch and have the convo with w my mentor?

How can I deal with this fear of failing?
