“Speak up more — even if I come off as annoying or risk losing friends.
Stand up more — for what I believe to be right, even if it’s dangerous.
Listen more — with greater curiosity and deeper compassion.
Love more — especially those who are angry and feel unheard.
Use my privilege more — I’ve won what Warren Buffett calls the “ovarian lottery.” I’m white, male, American, middle class, intelligent and straight. I had no say in this, but the world I was born into rewards me for it. Acknowledging this is one thing. Using it for a positive force in the world is another. (I know less how to do this well, so please help me learn how I can use do this better if you have thoughts).”
