  • I sometimes have to remind myself not to judge people when they don’t right-justify their numbers in spreadsheets or use random colors “to make it look pretty”
  • I have built a revenue forecast that showed 100% year-over-year growth and walked the VP of Sales through it without them running out of the room screaming

  • My heart rate accelerates whenever I’m sending an email with confidential salary info and I always triple-check the “To” line
