Hi Guys ,

End of Year Review is coming up. This is my first one in-house and im not great at selling myself. Anyone have suggestions for what things should be included? I do litigation and haven’t really had a real victory. All cases have been settlement candidates and the clients are happy but feel like that’s not enough to stand out.
Trump is getting Steve Harvey too, I'm calling it ... Dr. Phil and Maury will lead planned parenthood
Any reccs for things to do in Miami? Will be going in 2 weeks, M-TH. Friends want to go to gay bars and dance clubs but I’m not sure how the scene is on weekdays.
Finally gave Outer Wilds a spin today. Can't recommend it enough. True what they say though, saying almost anything about it is a spoiler. It's a pretty casual (but at times heavy!) first person game about exploration and unwrapping mysteries. Very well done.
I would love to do some freelance work (volunteer) for anyone in Public Relations, Communications and Marketing. The reason why I would like to volunteer my time is because I value the experience that I will receive in return. When you reach out I’m happy to provide a resume and some examples of my work. Thank you
I received offer letter via mail.
When can I expect a offer letter in workday?
Will it be a week before joining?
Have first round interviews for BCG in 2 weeks- already did the pymetrics. Should I go through all the case studies available as prep or is it too soon? Sounds like first round is a behavioral and online case study- no live case. Confident in my behavioral ability, but want to make sure I am prepared for online case. Any recommendations are helpful. Thanks!
Software sales pays a lot!

Does anyone have experience working for DataDog? Are you happy there, how is the company culture? Specifically within the sales org but I any insight is appreciate
T3 firm reached out re: direct admit to the partnership with some runway to grow the practice. I am at a firm now where there aren’t bright line metrics to make PPMD, but think I could make it in 2-5 years. This would be a step down in brand, but might be better from a WLB and getting to start at partner. Haven’t had firm comp talks yet but range was well north of 50% increase in cash comp from current (plus LT equity, draws, etc). Anyone take $ over brand? what are some traps to watch for?

I’m pretty certain I am battling ADHD but just realizing this in the past year (I’m 40). I am nervous about getting diagnosed because I’m terrified I’ll become dependent on the meds… and if I’m honest, that I’ll “like” them too much. Is that crazy? The feelings of being overwhelmed are becoming too much to bear and I can’t seem to get anything done. Any words of encouragement?
What courses or certificates would you recommend for someone who wants to learn how software works from a top-down approach?
My main goal is to understand how everything is connected, and why something is needed where it is needed.
Lately I've struggled SO much with balancing taking care of myself and work. Seems like I can either get a bunch of stuff done and have a productive workday OR eat, get exercise and talk to other people during the day. Yesterday I didn't eat a single thing and just went to bed after work. It's miserable. How can I find a balance?
What kinds of meds are you on to help with ADHD?
Let me tell you how my day went..Woke up this morning with no memory of what tasks I worked on last week or what my priorities were for this week. I viewed my Planner pad to refresh my memory and prioritize. Got a workout in & some intermittent fasting. So far so good.
Then out of the blue, my manager pinged me saying I had missed out on completing training. Not a good look as he had reminded me about another training last week. I immediately spiraled into negative thoughts, coming up (cont'd)
Started software development apprenticeship around a month ago, for the first few weeks my manager (unaware of the adhd) basically had me sit down and watch videos what he believes are relevant subjects (all during office hours 9-5). I'd basically got to the point where I would get home after the day and have no memory of anything that had happened. I finally got given a real project last week and have learned so much from the practical element of it, he now wants me watching more videos.
Has anyone tried lsd, shrooms, molly and felt some difference?I definitely think it always has some impact on me
Anyone else project confidence and calmness but secretly get really stressed out or irritated easily? When I'm with people who talk slowly for example I get so irritated on the inside I feel like I could scream, but I obviously can't show that so I just pretend to be listening when really the person is talking so slowly that I forget the word they've said by the time they get to the next one. Tips for calming the f down? I'm tense all the time.
So I finally got the courage to go to a psychiatrist and get tested to see if I have ADHD or any other “disorders” I don’t like that word . I find out my results on the 21st of April !
Anyone in Chicago that loves their therapist? I have realized I need to find someone that focuses on ADHD and will be really practical and pragmatic about how to manage work.
(I know I'm really talking about a coach, but I do also need the therapy part, and can't afford anything not covered by insurance, anyway)
What's your go-to work music? Or do you work better in complete silence? I can't work in silence without my brain getting loud, so I listen to house music or jazz while I work. My sister (who also has ADHD) can't get anything done unless it's dead silent. Just wondering what works for others
Anyone find themselves interrupting too much? I tend to get excited when talking with friends or about something I'm passionate about, and I occasionally will totally interrupt someone (unintentionally) when I get too into it. No one has mentioned it to me but I've caught a few looks from friends when it happens, and I'd like to work on it just for the sake of being polite. Advice?
Has ADHD affected your effectiveness in your speech and communication? How have you grappled with those issues in social settings as well as work?
Are there any other Project Managers who have ADHD ? What type of PM work do you do? Outside of it just not being what I want for a career path if I advance / I don’t find it rewarding anymore, I have greatly struggled as I’ve moved up and now with the simplest things. I’m turning in my notice this week because of how badly it affects my well being especially the last year and a half. I plan to take a long time off and look for something once I have resigned. Any insight is appreciated.
Anyone feel stimulants make you talk more? And like overfocus on a meeting that you’ve been speaking about a 5min topic for 20m then you have 10m to discuss 25m of stuff?
My ADHD has been a massive barrier for me in my career. I can’t stay at a job for more than 1.5 years.
My ADHD keeps me from being a consistently great performer. When I manage my ADHD, I am amazing. And when I fail to manage it, I fall short. And everyone then wonders why I can’t do my basic job responsibilities.
It’s frustrating. I am V qualified, talented and capable, but this thing is killing me. Everyone I know is getting ahead and I’m constantly struggling even though I’m ambitious.
My new insurance doesn’t cover Vyvanse. Today is my first day not taking it, and I’m really struggling. Any advice would be so appreciated.
Anyone a manager? I’m recently diagnosed (26F) and I can’t help but beat myself up everytime I fall short of my to do list. Makes me feel like a huge disservice to my team. I’ve been trying vitamin D and working out, but it makes my “highs” and “low” SO extreme. The simplest things are so complex in my mind.
If anyone feels similar, how do you manage these feelings? I’m personally considering switching to an individual contributor role, but can’t help but feel like a disappointment if I do.
