Pixar's Ed Catmull on making mistakes

"The notion that you’re trying to control the process and prevent error screws things up. We all know the saying it’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission. And everyone knows that, but I think there is a corollary: if everyone is trying to prevent error, it screws things up. It’s better to fix problems than to prevent them. And the natural tendency for managers is to try and prevent error and over-plan things."…

Calling Somone Fat is Never OK.

I've been hearing a lot of talk about Kim Kardashian's pregnancy weight gain and it's not been nice. It's hard enough being a woman and worrying about how you look. Double, no triple that when you're pregnant. The changes in your body, hormones and more already make you acutely sensitive to criticism when your pregnant so why would you add to that by saying mean things to someone. Celebrity or not throwing hurtful barbs about someone's weight is bullying and mean. Isn't it time we started…

Celebrating World Poetry Day & Phenomenal Women Everywhere

Thank you Maya Angelou for putting pen to paper and writing such beautiful, empowering words.

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.

I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size

But when I start to tell them,

They think I'm telling lies.

I say,

It's in the reach of my arms,

The span of my hips,

The stride of my step,

The curl of my lips.

I'm a woman

Phenomenally.…

My family and I just returned home from a vacation. A much-needed vacation from Winter, snow, cold, and darkness. We enjoyed some (luckily for us) warmer-than-normal February temps in Florida. One day sitting on the beach, just watching little crabs sifting through sand in-between darting in and out of their little burrows, I found myself thinking I should be doing something productive. Then I felt defensive and quickly reminded myself, "I'm on vacation. No work today." It really is true…
