Congratulations @KateGregory!

You have written some terrific answers over the years.

And so that this fits into a "question" format - what do you view as your "best" answer of all time?

  • Congratulations, Kate Gregory. Your answers have been extremely useful to me personally in navigating the workplace, not just in terms of the content but also the writing style. – Masked Man May 20 '18 at 7:15

    "what do you view as your "best" answer of all time?" Voting to close as too broad. :) – Masked Man May 20 '18 at 7:16

    Doesn't that make it POB rather than TB... @MaskedMan – user53718 May 20 '18 at 10:58

    @nij pedant alert: If the question is specifically addressed to Kate Gregory, it is primarily opinion based. However, since meta posts are addressed to the entire community, it is too broad because the community considers all her answers as the best. :) – Masked Man May 20 '18 at 14:54

Thanks for noticing! It is a fun milestone.

I believe I like How do I deal with the "30 minutes remaining" problem? the best. It's not my highest-voted, and not even the accepted answer on that question, but it's a useful piece of advice that applies across almost all occupations and at all levels in the management hierarchy. Because it's counter-intuitive, people are unlikely to discover it themselves, and instead can only learn it from someone they trust. The voting system here is one way readers can be told "I know this sounds wrong, but it actually works" and it's perfect for that answer.

I didn't expect this to be the site on which I had the most rep, but that's how it has turned out so far. Thanks to everyone for writing interesting questions that give us a chance to think about concepts we might otherwise take for granted, and to StackExchange for giving me a place to do some writing.

    That's a great answer and it is very true. I've found I really NEED to do that, versus going home knowing what my next task was but having not started it at all. "Parking" it like that let's me mentally stop thinking about it, whereas if I don't start it at all, I end up thinking about it all night. – dwizum May 21 '18 at 13:02
