I do agree that many men play to win. It also means that there are many others who do not play to win. Similarly some women play to win and many do not do so. You can only play as per your own nature. And as you said even if the advice comes from the best of sources but it does not appeal to you or fit your own mental makeup, then do not accept it. Having said all that, I believe that the reasons for the increased unhappiness and dissatisfaction in life and with jobs is that we are trying to force fit ourselves in situations because of peer and societal pressures or norms of success. If each person – man or woman – analyzed what is it that gives him or her happiness and satisfaction and then chalked out a plan / career path / life path, then we would end up making this planet a happy place – a la heaven!

It's a terrifying transition and all I've been doing is coming up with plan b, plan c, plan d, and so on. It's a good reminder that we have to expect the best for ourselves and play to win instead of always expecting the worst!

I like this post. It made me think. Not so much about me going for it (though that, too), but more about how I set my friends and family up: "what are your friends, colleagues, coaches, and even family members telling you about your own merits and abilities? Are they supportive, or are they really counseling you to lose?" Good reminder to make sure I'm amped about loved-ones hopes and dreams and not just being the voice of 'reason.' It's lovely in Seattle, should you have time for a visit. XO. Hello. I like this post. It made me think.

I've decided to settle for nothing at all, giving my name in three weeks ago as a volunteer to three nonprofit organizations. Sure would be nice, though, if at least one of them called me.
