  • A really really good post on privilege, prejudice & all kinds of hurtful behaviour:
    Maybe you don’t see anything wrong with it, maybe you think it’s oh-so-perfect to your artistic vision, maybe it seems like an oversensitive big deal over nothing to you. WELL OF COURSE IT DOES, YOU HAVE FUR. Nevertheless, just because you personally can’t feel that hurt, doesn’t mean it’s not real. All it means is you have privilege.
    That’s not a bad thing. You can’t help being born with fur. Every single one of us has some kind of privilege over somebody. What matters is whether we’re aware of it, and what we choose to do with it, and that we not use it to dismiss the valid and real concerns of the people who don’t share our particular brand.

  • Through building a company on accountability, mutual respect, and teamwork, we’ve seen our unlimited vacation day policy have tremendous results for our employees’ personal development and for productivity…I think Red Frog is more productive by giving unlimited vacation days. Here’s why:
    1. It treats employees like the adults they are.
    2. It reduces costs by not having to track vacation time.
    3. It shows appreciation.
    4. It’s a great recruitment tool.

  • “To you, my dear average reader of this column, I sincerely wish you short working days, long vacations and rewards commensurate—plus 5-10% extra—with the efforts you put in at work. I hope your commute is seldom longer than you plan, and your plans seldom wrecked by your commute. I hope you never have to work in teams; but if you do, I hope your teammates match their enthusiasm for summoning meetings with their alacrity to shut up and do something.”

    The order that I’ll present these 100 things is going to be pretty random. So the fact that this first one is first doesn’t mean that’s it’s the most important.. just that it came to mind first.
