Losing Jimmy Buffett feels like I've lost an old friend
Like most people, the news of Jimmy Buffett’s passing came a little out of the blue. I saw a post on social media and immediately picked up the phone and rang a friend, with whom I had bonded over Jimmy’s music some twenty years before. Last night I had a drink and played some Jimmy for my daughter.

Imagine if you will, the year is 1977. The top movie of the year is a science fiction movie, but it isn’t based in a galaxy far, far away. Instead, the events occur on Earth.

When sharing a story can get you in trouble
I’m all for giving someone honest and direct feedback. I think if someone genuinely wants to improve, they need to know where they can do better. I try to stick by that behavior in most aspects of my life… except when it comes to my bosses. Unless they invite direct blunt feedback, and I know that they won’t make my life a misery if I give it to them, I usually just try not to rock the boat.
