Having a Seat At the Table

  1. It is important to have a seat at the table.
  2. It is more important that one does not lose sight of who they are or their values in the process of attaining a seat at the table.
  3. It is even more important that one does not remain silent once they are at that table. Because then what would be the point of you being there in the first place.
  4. It is most important to know, that sometimes because of 2 and 3, you may never get an invite to the table. So just build your own damn table.
