The #2018Liberation List

Things I’m letting go of in 2018

Yesterday morning I tweeted about letting go in 2018. Then Cate Huston and Jean Hsu told me about this project on 2018 liberation. And I agreed to join and wrote this post. It’s less well-formulated than I’d like, but it’s really how I’m feeling and thinking about all the things I want to let go of in 2018.

Here’s my list:

On the positive end, 2017 was a year of many firsts:

An appearance on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

One of the highlights of 2017 for someone who watched Late Night almost every night during high school.

Three impactful jobs for the Kapor Center, Kapor Capital, and Project Include — highlighted with a Techcrunch Include Crunchie Award for Project Include and a public conversation with Anita Hill.

My first (and likely only) book, “Reset.” It launched with coverage in three Sunday New York Times in a row, including my op-ed, and a front page USA Today article. “Reset” even made it to over a dozen best and must-read book lists. But I’m most hopeful because of a leading venture capitalist’s recommendation that every male venture capitalist should read it.

(Thank you to the hard-working team at Spiegel & Grau, Aevitas, Frame Shift Consulting, the Kapor Center, Project Include, and Heather Wilson for making it all happen!)

The best highlights of 2017 were the many amazing people I got to meet online and in real life through the book, because of my work and experiences. And the plans already made to meet more of them in 2018!
