This Week Is All About Interesting Topics – Money, Marriage and a Move

This week has been a strange one – with many weirdness I’ve come to learn about, and a few I’ve known about and now in the midst of them taking shape. First up, our company leadership decided to move the San Francisco office from the most desirable real estate to the least one a few blocks down. This decision has created much discontent among the staff. And although they have expressed disapproval over the course of the last six months, they know they must either pack their ‘stuff’ and move along with the program or simply leave.

What is it about change that we all hate? Is it the idea of the unknown, or the fact someone else is making the change for us? 

Second, a close friend of mine found out from a friend of a friend of a friend that his wife has filed for divorce, and the idea of it has shocked him immensely.  At first, I sympathized, and after hearing his story, I realized his  euphoric views of what marriage is, is far from the realities and the fact he is so disconnected, hurt me deeply.

What is it that we women expect of men? Why is it men cannot fulfill our expectations, nor understand the terms of for better or worse?

Third, I had a discussion with someone the other night about those who are hungry for power and will pursue it at any cost and those who can buy power, even if they lack the quality to possess it. And the discussion turned to a civil argument about what comes first…

Power, or the money to buy power? And if you have the money, would you use it for good or simply to buy power? And do all politician seek power over money? 

What say you?
