I would not put your money on not traveling after this is all over. Yes, I think we still have several more months of this strange life where we are all WFH, but firms like ours will definitely revert back to travel models. Too many PPEDs think face time with clients is too important to do away with travel.

There will be a business change. Will it be no travel, probably not. Will there be less travel, for sure

I think it’s likely that things will never be the same. Who knows how it will look going forward. I would guess that travel will be significantly impacted. A lot will probably depend on your personal specialty. The consultants who implement on the shop floor will have a more difficult time working remotely than those that focus on analysis and due diligence. In any case, if you are still employed I wouldn’t make any moves until we come out of this mess, and that could be awhile.

Do I have a drinking problem? I live alone. I cannot wait for wine at 6. I work my ass off sober 12 hrs a day. Then I drain 2 bottles of wine. I wake up parched and confused and do it again. I did not have Excedrin yesterday and had to shuffle to Rite Aid to get it. Plus a xanax to chill. But I WORK and produce and never let anyone down. Is this OK? I just work, drink, sleep, repeat.

Ladies, I need… perspective. Last night, my husband essentially asked me to “get fit” for him and to do “beauty and maintenance things” with him in mind and not only for me.

It hurt to have this man essentially say, you need to look better for me. Am I wrong here? Do I just not see that he’s right and I should be doing these things for him?
