Katrina's Letter Of The Week

February 22 · Issue #48 · View online
Every week, I'll write you a letter. A letter about anything, really. My goal is just to make you think.

I was recently certified as a spin instructor. My new “job” entails listening to a lot of music to find beats that fit my instructions. I love any excuse to go down a Spotify rabbit hole, so it’s entertaining work. 
This week on my music marathon, I found an old song - one you’ve probably heard before. “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten. In case you haven’t listened to the song, it’s one of those anthem-type songs. 
As I listened more, I realized the song is really about words. The ones we did or didn’t say. The energy and effort it ultimately takes to fight. How one word can set off an explosion or become a wrecking ball in your head. We’ve all been there. The echo of criticisms is endless sometimes.
This week, the word that set off an explosion for me was “crazy.” How we, as humans, can and should take care of each other’s mental health at work. My blog post of the week is about precisely that, sharing stories that made my heart hurt. Dawn Burke writes on her new job here at Three Ears Media, and we share a post from our buddy Kris Dunn about helping unemployed people. 
Hope you have a great weekend -
Katrina Kibben
CEO, Three Ears Media
