Somewhat aspirational. I loved it. Didn't know what it meant. But I found it to be hilarious and cuttingly honest, which I admire. I considered getting a T-shirt with the words typed out across my chest.
If we want to take advantage of the countless flexible ways we can fit work and life together in order to be our best, on and off the job, then we can't be derailed by a rigid definition of success.

I realized, I could use a commencement of my own, a speech that put me front and center of my own life possibly celebrating 50 years on this earth and being proud of it.
Yes, it sounds like a cliche. Sure, there are things about my experience there I don't miss. But it gave me a full two years to discover the kind of person I want to be, in a way that staying in the U.S. wouldn't have done.
Where will Obama be if his administration's conventional methods are not up to the task of cutting through controversies that are engendered, at least in part, by reliance on conventional methods? That's when things could get very interesting.

"I have experienced failure as a politician," Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe once said. In his second round as the country's prime minister, he is determined to avoid the mistakes of the past -- beginning with how to deal with the stagnant Japanese economy. I asked Abe about this when I met with him on Thursday afternoon in his office in Tokyo. "My policies do not conform with the conventional wisdom," he said.

The next wave of the women's movement is about to break. Across the public sphere, women are awakening, becoming reenergized, taking stock and speaking up. Nowhere was this more apparent than at the inaugural YaleWomen Global Conference: Vision, Values, Voices.
What will the world look like in 50 years? The problems facing our world are so large that they demand disruptive thinking. We don't have time to think in incremental terms. It's time to challenge the status quo, and dare to imagine what we can do.
I met Bush rather briefly when he was governor of Texas and found him to be intelligent and funny -- though he certainly turned out somewhat differently than I anticipated.
We all have goals and we all have fears about achieving them, but it's how we handle those fears that determine whether or not -- and how quickly -- we get there.
For the women of today, it's not enough to enter the world of men. But, it's time to change the parameters of that world, time to reshape the way it can function for women.
