As I'm writing this post, I can't remember specifically what inspired this thought, but I have a feeling it was either a TED Talk video or a podcast. Either way, what matters most is the lesson behind it - although I do believe in sharing your sources when you can! - so I'm going to [...]
Don’t Bring Your Feelings To Work… Or Anywhere Else They Don’t Belong
