Article reminds me of an Atlantic post from earlier this summer that cited the same study. Both are remarkably actionable, and wonderful to bring to day-to-day life.

When your co-worker tells you that a commercial reminded him of you... #mylifethesedays.
Marc Andreessen has said that there are 15 companies per year that generate 90% of the returns for VCs. Startups jockey for position in the “Billion Dollar Club.” In the world of startups we don’t have the S&P 500, we have the “Unicorn 50.”Read more in TechCrunch. (Thanks, Katherine)

Nevertheless, like their predecessors, the youngest men have expectations more traditional than those of their female peers. Whereas three-quarters of Millennial women anticipate that their careers will be at least as important as their partners’, half the men in their generation expect that their own careers will take priority. And whereas two-thirds of Millennial men expect that their partners will handle the majority of child care, just under half—42%—of Millennial women expect that they themselves will do so.Read more in HBR.

"Stand up for what you believe in...you have to take a stand. You have to be able to look yourself in the mirror and say: 'This aligns with my values. This aligns with my opinion of who I want to be, and my personal legacy.' A lot of women allow things to happen because they worry that if they take a stand, it's going to derail them. But if you don't take a stand, it is going to derail you personally, because you're not going to be able to look yourself in the mirror and say, 'This is who I am.' I think it impacts your authenticity."Check out the neat interactive article in the NYT. Thanks, Caryn
But being busy has become a refrain and rationale for the things we don’t do, an acceptable and even glamorous excuse. My friend at lunch reminded me of what the Buddhist monk Sogyal Rinpoche calls “active laziness” – the filling of our lives with unessential tasks so we feel full of responsibilities or, as he calls them, “irresponsibilites.”Read Dina Kaplan's piece in Medium.

In other words, "men are now facing the same calculus that women have for decades," writes New York Times reporter Claire Cain Miller.

Early stints in consulting and banking also hardly seem to be a prerequisite for either gender: about three-quarters of the men and women do not have any reference in their publically available resumes to time spent in either industry, liberally defined, at any time. Prestigious MBA programs are also hardly a requirement; only 25% of the women and 16% of the men hold an MBA from a top-ten school. In short, for both male and female Fortune 500 CEOs, collecting a single conventional badge of prestige, let alone collecting a handful of them, may help, but is hardly a gating factor.Read more in HBR.

When I ask, “How are you?” that is really what I want to know.
I am not asking how many items are on your to-do list, nor asking how many items are in your inbox. I want to know how your heart is doing, at this very moment. Tell me. Tell me your heart is joyous, tell me your heart is aching, tell me your heart is sad, tell me your heart craves a human touch. Examine your own heart, explore your soul, and then tell me something about your heart and your soul.Read more at On Being. Thanks, +Sam Solie
