What do you do to motivate yourself when you need to work on the weekend? I’m having a hard time getting started today (doesn’t help that I’ve worked every weekend for months now). Part of it is that I left the hard part of a project for last, but mostly I just don’t feel like working on a Sunday.

Anyone have tips on how to best clarify client briefings with clients? Is there a list of must-ask questions? Our clients often don’t know what they want and I feel like we’re not asking enough/right questions to narrow down on objectives and deliverables. Even when we align on objectives, it still ends up in changing/adding request once they see creative development. Simply want to avoid having too many rounds of revisions as they often want to “test and see” numerous amount of versions.
At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project. I believe I'm on track to promotion in the next year. So, I could put in a year of full time school to check the box off, but I'd be sacrificing hobbies and social life (not to mention cost). Is this FOMO or is there real opportunity here?

As an interviewer, if someone writes a thank you email, but you know they didnt get the position, do you still respond? I am sure its a nice thing to do, but not sure how to even respond.
Well, our district found a COVID loophole and are exploiting it. They get to determine whether or not we are considered a “close contact” or not with a positive student. And because they told us to “never be within 6’ of a student for 15 minutes or longer” (in a tiny classroom with 28 JH students), they’re justifying that if we test positive “despite their efforts”, it’s on us, not the district, so they won’t cover any medical costs or give us the Covid days off. Talk about feeling expendable.
