The privilege of clean slates

Somebody said this the other day: the real beauty of things like Universal Basic Income is the chance to start from scratch.

To walk away from a bulls#t job, a failed project, an abusive situation - without fear of ending up under the bridge.

When we build, lead, teach, or learn, the consequences may be less dramatic - but I still think many of us don't get to work with enough clean slates.

There's always the baggage of expectations, specifications, "we-have-always-done-it-that-ways".

The next time I get to work with a clean(ish) slate, I'm determined to cherish and respect the privilege it gives me.

(Of course, the Zen plot twist: every hour comes with 60 clean slates, just for you.)
