Thank you for saying that. I edited this piece and that’s something I should have caught because you’re right about that word choice. If you live in a culture then you’re immersed in it. No need to obsess about it because it’s automatic. That’s the value of culture — and that’s relevant in lots of places, including work.

If you’re fighting your culture than you do need to obsess. It takes a lot of attentiveness. I think that’s why I missed the word — I was projecting my experience if I tried to follow the advice.
