It’s not all about getting stuff done. Sometimes it is about simply thinking. Or reading. Or lazing.
Your career shouldn’t make you feel guilty. If a task feels like a chore, that’s ok. But if the entire effort does, then maybe it’s not the right direction for you. Or the right time. Or worth the time.
Advice is meant to help us with things we already want to do. Advice is never about chastising someone. That’s not helping; that’s opining.
