I'll get right to the point. The workplace, as we know it today, is one of the most amazing and beautiful socioeconomic experiments of the past two centuries. Why? Because there's no show like it anywhere else on Earth. I'm sure you would agree.

I'd like to take a few moments to express my sincere gratitude - for your dedication to reading the Working Quietly blog, and for standing beside me on this writer's adventure to lay bare some parts of the soul that have not seen daylight in a long, long time. I'm grateful for your support and I hope that we can continue on our journey together.

That's the sound of a project vacuum, and you might be in one now!
When a project starts, everyone's pumped and ready to change the world. The kickoff meeting is epic. Everybody has a job to do. The future looks bright and airy.
Until, some months later, it isn't.
