Six Lessons Lana Al-Resheed Taught Me Without Even Realizing It

The Importance of ‘Red-Teaming’ Any Idea or Situation 

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, ‘red-teaming’ is basically when you shoot holes in any idea or plan in order to better see it’s weaknesses and faults. This is a valuable skill to have whenever you are considering taking something new on, whether it’s in life or in work. Red-teaming, essentially, improves the strategies in any plan by recognizing the vulnerabilities in that plan. I’ve noticed Lana doing this with almost every big business decision she makes right off the bat. I actually think she does this so intuitively that she doesn’t have any idea that she’s doing it.

No One Has Any Idea How To Make Any Kind of Relationship Work

Since most human beings are horribly poor at dealing with other human beings it’s important to know what we DON’T know so that we can all cut each other a little more slack. Identifying our own shortcomings and triggers, teaching ourselves the critical cornerstones of healthy relationships, understanding the significance of knowing ourselves, accepting that some conflict is HEALTHY and learning how to deal with it, fighting fair, and the importance of having a shared worldview with those you are closest to is a constant learning process and can be very difficult to master. Lana Al-Resheed has taught me that this process never ends and that no matter how much you know your relationships, they can always surprise you and teach you something about yourself that you didn’t know before.

All my love!

    1. Thank you! And we actually met through this very blog! First we met at an event we were both invited to, then I interviewed her for Running in Heels, then she got in contact with me through my blog’s Instagram account! So, really, it would have never happened if this blog wasn’t here. And thank you again for always being so encouraging, m’dear!

  1. This list is so badass and so true, reading it felt like getting an inside peak into Warren Buffet’s head, if he had any charm or sense of humor. Way to go, the two of you. Have fun taking over the world!

  2. لنا الرشيد شخصية كويتية مشرقة، مساندة للشباب و الإبداع، و مفكرة غير عادية في مجتمع أقل من عادي. إستمتعنا بالمقالة و بإنتظار كل جديد منكم.

    1. مشكورة على الكلام الطيب و أكيد أنا أؤيد رأيك بالمبدعة الي هي لنا الرشيد. فعلاً إنسانه مافي منها إثنين.

  3. “Look up in the sky, its a Bird… its a Plane… No Its Superwoman. Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Who, disguised as Lana Al-Resheed, mild mannered marketing guru for a nation-wide magazine fights the unending battle for truth, justice, and the Kuwaiti way.”

    Great story…as always.

  4. لو في يوم صار عندنا وزارة سياحية بالكويت أنا أرشح لنا الرشيد أول إسم لمنصب الوزير من دون أي تردد.
