Also, I have to assume that everyone that called Brie Larson's Captain Marvel "wooden", "under acted", or "flat" tell women they meet to smile more on a regular basis...

After my fourth time through, I can confirm that the already great Captain Marvel improves with each viewing, Brie Larson is a national treasure, and that soundtrack is 🔥🔥🔥. The "I have nothing to prove to you" scene is "Wonder Woman crossing no man's land" scorching!

In a meeting of all teammates in my platform doing end of quarter reviews and retros...and it's reaffirming that I'm a part of a ludicrously smart, funny, and engaged team that takes on new challenges, embraces risk, and has really pounced on "inspect & adapt!"

Task conflict is good, but needs to be monitored because over time it will turn into relationship conflict.

"Sharding" will always make me laugh because it ALWAYS sounds like "sharting" when spoken.

"Don't accept human error as the root cause for anything. Dig deeper!"
