Katrina's Letter Of The Week

December 14 · Issue #39 · View online
Every week, I'll write you a letter. A letter about anything, really. My goal is just to make you think. Then, I handpick 3 ideas and posts you'll love (and learn from).

You read that right. I like people who can admit they’ve failed. Whose lives haven’t always been easy. Who can admit that life is hard and know that their vulnerability is not a weakness.
Let that sink in. It’s not what we’re normally told. We’re told to tough it out, stick through it, overcome - not slow down or admit defeat.
In fact I can’t think of one time in my life someone just let me lose. But I really wish they had.
I believe we can learn a lot more from failure than our wins, especially at work. Just think how you could thrive if your predecessor had left behind a failure binder and you already knew the 12 ways they tried (and failed).
So this week, let’s be honest about failure. Bold about defeat. Let people know that sometimes, we’re losers.

Bullets: Are they really necessary in job postings?
"If your response to the broken workplace is to ask why people care so much, you completely missed the point. Work is not separate from life, work is part of our lives. We assess our own value often times based on our work. Work has become part of our survival."
