Be my best

Motherhood.

We all want to be our best.

And what do we do to be it? I keep trying and I keep facing myself in the mirror and seeing what is not as much as what is.

What does it mean to be professional?

Was very intrigued recently when I read a blog by an accomplished knowledge worker… a mathematics PhD who teaches computer science at a major US university.

His thesis: Knowledge Workers are Bad at Working.

“I say this because unlike every other skilled labor class in the history of skilled labor, we lack a culture of systematic improvement.”

Something to think about.
