I was in a car accident on my way to the conference, but I learned that it shouldn’t define me as a person. It shouldn’t define my capabilities. It shouldn’t define my weekend or my relationship with my family. I learned this while at a technology conference, and want to reassemble the story now, before it loses its rawness.
On why I always managed to talk myself out of buying conference tickets in the past, but why I’m finally taking the plunge this time. Musings on “ladder-climbing,” and not being ashamed to create opportunities for myself.
