Today's options

I'm the furthest thing away from a raging feminist, but I did enjoy this talk by Sheryl Sandberg that went around on International Womens' Day last year (ex-Googler, now Facebooker and champion of getting more women in leadership); it's well worth the 15 minutes it runs for, if you haven't already seen it.

Anyway, this article on 'A Woman's Place' in Silicon Valley included my favourite quote from her so far - not just for women:

"The reason I don't have a plan is because if I have a plan I'm limited to today's options."

A huge thank you to my dad's boss for passing it on (I'm ashamed to say I only 'read' The New Yorker for the cartoons).  Here's to not having a plan!
