Lust & Love List

listI have been building this list for a little while and decided to share their inspiration. People make my Lust & Love list because they:

  • Make me think – great brain sex
  • Have a distinct POV and not afraid to share it
  • Inspire creativity and/or make laugh, feel good

This is a list in no particular order – cause I can’t show preference.

The Beatles – Eight Days a Week

This movie is most amazing because Ron Howard has remastered hundreds of hours of film footage and photographs someone was smart enough to record and save. We get to see and hear the Beatles perform – not just talk about it. And there are narratives from Malcolm Gladwell, Whoopi Goldberg, roadies, reporters who covered the tour and the remaining Beatles. It is wonderful seeing John Lennon perform.

Change of Attitude

Look we all need a shot in the arm, slap in the face, knock in the head. I think eight months into a move across the globe – I deserved and needed all of the above at various times.

Inspirational – Larke Riemer

I have had the great, good fortune of meeting some amazing people since I arrived in Australia. This week, for the first time, I felt like I was back in the USA – not something I was looking for or needed. Marita O’Callaghan, a colleague at work invited me to attend The Management Club. Not knowing much, the speaker, people or location – I said yes because she invited me.

An Open Letter to Managers of Women by Jason Shen

Despite this woman’s outstanding contributions, you haven’t promoted her or given her a raise. It’s not fair and you know it.

Maybe you think she has to wait her turn, or brush up on her soft skills and work better with others, or that she simply needs more experience. But all of those things also applied to the many talented men who have rapidly advanced through the ranks of your organisation. They had somehow not been beholden to the same constraints of “promotions are given every three years” or “but what if so-and-so gets upset that they didn’t get a raise too?”

More than Managing Up

If young men are formed from a young age to be a part of a network of leaders, how do women fit or break into this “club” – socially or professionally? Boys/men deeply ingrained sense of leadership, ownership, privilege, power, abilities that must and will lead to success – let’s face it, anyone who has formed a strong, deep network of friends (who then become colleagues) and have been comfortable with each other since the age of 14 – that’s a tough circle to break.

Pants as Optional

My friend Amy Wolfe has a gorgeous little girl. On a recent Facebook post she mentioned Miss E was going through “pants as optional” phase. My mind immediately went to Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants. Something about pants and women has been on my mind. The campaign to elect Hillary Clinton is on my mind for sure.
