I recently started behavior modification therapy. At first I thought it was just a gimmick but it really works. I’m using a workbook but doing it with my therapist. I would not be able to do this alone. And of course the meds….

Ativan and therapy

Breath, yoga, noticing I have thoughts and choosing them wisely.

Okay the caffeine thing is big, but somethings sneakily ignored. Try weening off or a lower amount, if you’re like me sleep can be rough if you had anxiety through the day and evening.

So it’s a vicious cycle.

Need caffeine cause can’t sleep.

Can’t sleep because too much caffeine.

I suggest trying to ween off on a slower work week or take some PTO to “reset” your system.

Nature, exercise, yoga, breathing, healthy food, mindless tasks like cooking, cleaning, etc, doing smth for pure pleasure, not goal/reason driven, like massage, dancing, good company etc

Is this feasible? I want to make around $240k in fed contracting.

Don't want to:
- Be a senior exec at a big firm
- Do a lot of biz dev (don't mind white papers or presenting)
- Get higher than secret clearance
- Do cyber or software engineering (don't mind managing tech talent)

Do want to:
- Have sole ownership of a single project (complex, operational work with 50+/- direct reports is fine)
- Work internationally and/or across multiple countries
- Control the project/info flow to client

I am a new Data Scientist. My boss told me to get the DBA erson to add new columns to the sql database. I need it for my analysis. I asked the DBA how they would like this information and they did not respond. How would you want this information delivered to you? Should I just write out the SQL queries for them? Or give the data source and values? I want to build a good relationship with the DBA so any advice helps.

I have a problem, I over explain myself and when I do it with my women colleagues I think they get the impression that I'm mansplaining to them. I started the habit because I ran into an issue where a lot of people often weren't sure what I was talking about and I'm trying to be nice and explain it up front so things are absolutely clear. Is there a way to do this where I don't run the risk of offending my colleagues? I certainly don't mean to imply incompetence.
