We are celebrating our four-year anniversary on the pod! Yowza! Thank you so much for your continued support. It means the world to Karima and me. In this celebratory episode, Karima and I are chatting about a symptom that many Millennials seem to be suffering from and don’t even realize it – Millennial burnout. We also touch upon the issue of perfectionism that many lawyers find themselves grappling with. Must we spend hours reviewing a simple email out of fear of sending a less-than-perfect draft? We round out the conversation by exploring what “self-care” really means and if it truly lives up to its promise.
