Katrina's Letter Of The Week

April 19 · Issue #56 · View online
Every week, I'll write you a letter. A letter about anything, really. My goal is just to make you think.

I read a letter last week from Jamie Varon about appreciating the “yet.” How, in life, we so often glorify making things look easy. That’s probably why most conferences are full of case studies that dial 6 months worth of work into 45 minutes of inspiration.
She suggested that instead, we should be glorifying the hard work. We should look at the baby steps and appreciate that you’re doing the work to get where you want to be.
Let’s get real. That’s a hard concept to feel. We want to feel accomplished. We want to find the answers. We want it to be easy, too.
But pretty much nothing works like that. Changing anything isn’t easy. An overhaul doesn’t just happen overnight. It’s not a simple checklist.
But I want to remind you that the magic is in taking the baby step, not blowing it all up. You can find purpose and take job in choosing the effective increment to take and moving in that direction. We don’t have to do it all.
The path to better is not linear. It’s built step by teeny tiny step. That’s why this week, I’m sharing articles about 3 tiny steps I think can help. I wrote about returnships. They’re a step in the right direction to bring more parents back to the workplace. I also have a video on writing better emails. There’s so much we can’t control in hiring, but we can control how we ask. Finally, a thought provoking piece of research on measuring inclusion quantitatively. Trust me, you’ll geek out on this one too.
I hope you have a great weekend and find at least a little joy in the fact that you’re not there yet, but you will be.
