I’ve done a lot of posts on this blog and one of my other blogs where I’ve given 10 tips that should take 2 or 3 minutes to read. The last one I did was in 2015 when I gave 10 Communications Tips and linked to all the other tips I’d given before then that were in the same category.


It turns out I’ve never done one for diversity. In 2012 I wrote one titled 10 Ways To Look At A Diversity Issue and in 2014 I wrote 10 Ways Diversity Improves Our Lives. It’s possible that one of those could have been read in 3 minutes but the other was definitely going to take more people 7-10 minutes to get through.

There must be something with me thinking about empathy and snow at this time of year, even though the last time I wrote about it was in 2010. Strangely enough, many of the circumstances are the same; too much snow in some places, icy cold in others, or barely snow and ice in many places but they still closed schools, roads and in some instances businesses.


This time around we had a bit of the same. Although our total accumulation was “only” around 15″, at one point it snowed for 55 straight hours at different intensities and we had 4 straight days of below zero weather. While we laughed at the name of the weather pattern we were having, called bomb cyclone, we knew the overall weather wasn’t anything to laugh about.

Every two weeks I sit down and sort out my mother’s pills into a pill case. I do the same thing for myself, but it’s a much different thing. I only have two prescription pills; everything else is a supplement. Mom has 6 prescription pills, some two a day, some only morning, some only evening. She also has a number of other things she has to take; aspirin, acetaminophen, Vitamin D… other stuff.


I had to create a list to keep it all together. Even though I know that one mistake won’t throw her off the rails, a couple of pills are really important. One is her sleeping pill; that’s important because if Mom doesn’t sleep, no one sleeps. Another is for her dementia; if I miss that one she’s wildly unpredictable during the daylight hours and we’re all stressed when she’s stressed.

A few weeks ago Matt Damon found himself in the middle of controversy… again. Again, he was the target of women across the country for something he said in an interview. You’d think he would have learned from the first mistake a couple of years ago; nope, guess not.

This time he decided to give his take on the recent sexual misconduct accusations against some of the most powerful men in entertainment. The statement that got him in trouble was this one:

Last week I had an epiphany, something that will change the scope of this blog for 2018. I don’t want to go over the entire thing again since I wrote about it on LinkedIn but I’ll give a short synopsis before pushing forward.

family authenticity
doesn’t get more
authentic than this

In essence, I read an article by a woman saying that she tried doing everything the “right” way for decades and none of it seemed to work. The right way was following boundaries that other set as the norm, boundaries that would eventually lead to promotions, wealth and success. None of it worked and all she got was depressed. Once she decided to be her authentic self things took off, she was happy, and now she runs her own company.
