Dear Lucy

I was recently introduced to the excellent writing of Lucy Kellaway, from the Financial Times. This post in Dear Lucy seems the appropriate way to introduce you to her writing...

"I have been a fund manager for 10 years and currently work for a large UK institution. The job is great: flexible and well-paid. My problem is that I genuinely don’t believe it is possible to do this job – outperforming other fund managers and equity indices - with any consistency. I believe the industry is based on the lie that fund managers add value through skill, rather than luck. This makes it hard for me to keep motivated. Should I move – even though I can’t think of anything else I want to do – or should I accept the idea that work is not meant to be meaningful? I am married, but have no children. Fund manager, male, 34"
