Reading this made me smile. A lot. Interspersed with moments of what could be better described as a post-traumatic stress response... Too many all-too-familiar stories. And a reminder of the sunshine from behind the storm clouds.

Thank you for sharing and HNY to you too.

Such a fantastic read. A powerhouse of emotions and experiences so many have on the path, tied together by the fundamental, inescapable lesson.

Also a masterful collection of breadcrumbs that everyone/anyone will need to to take note of on what to Google or learn or write or figure out as we all define our own paths or "write our own manual" on how to approach everything.

Great one.

This is excellent. Fantastic post. There's a ton to be said for realising -- and deeply internalising -- that everything is figureoutable. You get asked to do something you don't know how to do, but accept anyway, because you have the confidence you'll be able to work it out.

This resonates.

Trawling the firm's knowledge repository till 1am. Frantic web searches for inspiration. Learning enough, quickly to guide your team.

Probably why it feels like there's always so much more to learn.
