The rep mentioned a blog post on the Clear Task blog about “self-implementationitis”. The author gave the symptoms and solutions [...]

    I wrote a post on “Perpetuating the In Group”, and a classmate of mine picked up on a particular line that highlighted my bias. I stated in the post that I have more in common with young professionals than I do with stay-at-home-moms, and she noted that she has several SAHM acquaintances with MBAs from [...]
