I loved the HBR post! The OR example was eye opening. I have to train at a stake event next month, and wanted people to participate. I think following this example will facilitate the success I wanted.

Fascinating! The HBR post is a real eye opener.

Lots of questions come up. What does my name say about me? Why is it sometimes hard to say/remember certain people's names? How do names evolve?

I resolve to do better at remembering names.

So, so true. Thank you, Whitney. I remember some of my first experiences seeing my children's names in print (e.g. on piece of mail or a certificate not created by me.) I always felt a little startled beause I thought, "They are out there in the world. They are their own entity." Our names our powerful things.

Pretty clearly I need to look into the Zabinskis' story. That should help me get to the 280 hero target :)

Loved the HBR post (as well as the DtD) - I caught the interview on NPR a few weeks back and it was excellent. One of your commentors on HBR is right - it's more than taking time for a checklist, it is taking time to create a team...

Thank you for giving this important issue a voice!

Just curious...for those of you who are married and took your husband's last name, how has that changed, if at all, your perception of yourself/identity? How about those of you who kept your family's surname?

Janna -

I was delighted to take my husband's name because I didn't particularly like my maiden name -- and it was so early in my career, it didn't matter.

I suppose if I had gotten married in my 30s when my career was already established, it would have been different.

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
