What radical candor means and how to give radically candid feedback.
How to deal with past mistakes when they make a comeback to your mind and make you feel bummed.
Alpha, our German Shepherd dog, left us forever on Feb 28, 2021.
She was diagnosed with Pyothorax (causes unknown). The chest infection was so severe that her heart did not respond to CPR during surgery. Alpha was very healthy and energetic otherwise. She loved chasing balls. Alpha opened her eyes big and wide whenever we went out to play. In two weeks, she would have turned 3 years old.
We have done our best to give Alpha the best life possible. We hope she was happy in her life. We attempted to write down all the happiness she brought to us, but it’s really hard to capture all the lively moments in writing. Therefore, we made this video of our favorite Alpha moments.
Time will go on, and these moments will remain.
Alpha will be forever missed❤️
Here’s a post about Alpha when she was very young.
It’s been a hard year with the coronavirus. I’m very grateful for being healthy, employed as normal, despite staying at home for most of the year. Check out my write-up of this year in Chinese 《告别不同寻常的2020年》。
“Never miss an opportunity to be fabulous.” comes Tina Seelig’s book What I wish I Knew When I Was 20 — one of my favorite books. She teaches at Stanford University, and promises to deliver her very best in each class and expects the same from the students.
She said this in the book “being fabulous comes in many flavors, but it all starts with removing the cap and being willing to reach for your true potential. This means going beyond minimum expectations and acknowledging that you are ultimately responsible for your actions and the resulting outcomes. Doing just 1% better each day leads to enormous positive results. Life isn’t a dress rehearsal, and you won’t always get a second chance to do your best.”
Parul shared her journey in getting through breast cancer treatment and these five lessons – how to be resilient and take control of our lives, during the uncertain times.
Some say good attitudes = good outcomes. But good managers know that this is not true. Here’s a framework from my coworker on developing people.
Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague, than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise. John Tukey
If someone asks you to make a tool lighter so it’s not too tiring to use, is “lighter” the real solution?
