"If you try to connect the dots of your career, if you mess it up, you're going to wind up on a very limited path. If I decided what I was going to do in college -- when there was no Internet, no Google, no Facebook... I don't want to make that mistake. The reason I don't have a plan is because if I have a plan I'm limited to today's options."
I was so impressed with Sheryl Sandberg when I saw her in April on this panel
about Women in Tech, which I maintain is the best panel I've seen at a conference ever (and I've seen a lot of them.) Both the article
and the panel
are highly recommended -- whether you're a woman, in the tech industry, both, or neither.
