WFH + short week = 🙌🍺🙏🍻👍
One of the downsides of WFH is getting bored and going online shopping. HOWEVER, I think everyone should go to harrier.com and buy the coolest shirt ever made:

Appreciate this may’ve been asked previously; but the WFH desk chair market is a minefield. Upgrading my existing Amazon £75er. Any top recommendations from people? Poised to buy an Autonomous ErgoChair Pro (you get what you pay for..) but not sure if there’s competitive quality for less than the £450 they ask for. Thanks!

Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!

For anyone missing a whiteboard while WFH: I picked up a big dry erase mat from Staples that I mounted on a wall. It doesn’t clean off as easily as an actual whiteboard but it does the job. They also make whiteboard paint you can put on your wall. The best one is made by a company called “remarkable” but it isn’t cheap.

What are his chances getting hired in consulting, and what might be the best kind of practice for him to look at?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Is there anything your companies used to provide in office that they no longer do so since going remote? (ie: catered lunches)
I find it interesting the volume of talk about anti-anxiety meds has dropped off a cliff since the pandemic started. Are we feeling less social anxiety WFH?

Seeking advice: Would you consider business development role as a good exit from MBB? Is BD skill valuable? Is the impression that BD is pure salesman wrong?
Mid-career/M level fishes: suggestion on how to nip in bud when project is feeling beyond your grasp from a content/SME-wise? As a M, it’s my role to clarify, delegate and direct to rest if team. My SM is more experienced in the technical content and is doing more of the management activities that I feel should be doing. I’m feeling increasingly lost. Doesn’t help my key junior resources exited + PTO on what ended up being a critical content week.

What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful?
