I’ve received all kinds of invitations to provide a “counterpoint” (read: snarky, sanctimonious rejoinder) to Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” campaign. Thanks, but no thanks.
Here’s the audio of my March 5 conversation with Bruce Wolf and Dan Proft on WLS 890 AM in Chicago.
I know that every option I have, from the time I get out of my clean, warm bed in the morning to the time I read stories to my safe, happy children at night, is a gift from the universe that I have not truly earned. It is an accident of fate that I have this life. And I know that I am lucky.
I don’t really know, though, how to write about this in a way that’s honest and, more important, useful.
