[15] DEAR MR. CHRISTMAS: A WHITE ELEPHANT OPPORTUNITY

[SOMMAIRE > II. THIS TOO SHALL PASS >
II.3 UNE OPPORTUNITÉ UN GUISE D’ÉLÉPHANT BLANC / A WHITE ELEPHANT OPPORRTUNITY ]


What is a White Elephant Opportunity?

An opportunity that is not necessarily obvious.
It may not align with your perception of success, so you might initially reject it.
It will attract you for reasons that may be unclear.
You will be scared.
You may fail (and that’s OK!).

Heather M. Cassano, Women Techmakers 2016 NYC Summit, #WTM16.

“To be successful in your career, do not run away from White Elephant Opportunities: Look for them!” Heather Cassano during #WTM16

    I love reading. That being said, I am often asked: “What are you reading this week?”, which I will partially answer by logging my “Book of the Week” choice in this post, which will be frequently updated throughout the year 2016. I should mention that I had read some of these several times, because they are totally worth it!
The stories behind how I found/was recommended each book are far more interesting, but let’s save them for another day, shall we?
