Earlier today in a meeting, I was asked to describe how I was feeling this week in one word. I said,"Surprisingly accomplished... and let's pretend that's hyphenated."
Truthfully, however, I shouldn't have felt surprised. I feel an incredible sense of satisfaction every day about the work that I do — both as an individual contributor and as a member of our team.(We work really hard, produce a ton of incredible content, and are constantly iterating and innovating on how we can take what we're doing now and make it better. It can be a lot, at times, but it's oh, so exciting.)
However, my sense of daily accomplishment is often eclipsed by... well, what some might consider to be a petty feeling.
I'm referring to those moments when I come across something so cool, I exclaim,"Man, why didn't I think of that?!"
Just look at thisdedication in Josh Gondelman's new book.First, why haven't I ever thought of something like that? Second, why don't I have any friends who are authors who could dedicate a book to me, so that my enemies would be jealous?
(I don't think that's too much to ask. Just be a good friend, OK?)

To be clear, I'm not saying I won't champion and lift up others for their amazing ideas when it's deserved. But I'm a human being with flaws. So, sometimes I'm going to pout about it, OK?
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to explore my network for authors... for no particular reason. 🙃
