for not cringing from what I look like

Heard on Adam Grant’s podcast.

Kiran: I called my wife on my way home and said this happened, they put up the list of the worst managers at Bridgewater and I was number one. And I had an amazing, energizing day … And it felt great. And she said, “That’s wonderful, Kiran, I’m proud of you.”

Adam Grant: She said she was proud of you? For being the worst manager at Bridgewater?

Kiran: No, for looking in the mirror, for not cringing from what I look like, for being able to see reality for what it is.
