I've spent a fair amount of time listening to the conversations my co-workers have during lunch, and I've come to the conclusion that dull routine is the bane of human kind. I see their tired expressions and droopy posture, and I think, "These people need variety in their lives." At lunchtime, they shuffle into the cafeteria, eat their banal old food, and -- every day, day in and day out -- talk about things besides grasshoppers. Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against non-leaping insect conversation. But it gets old after a while. If it were up to me, I'd pep up the daily routine by varying the conversations from day to day. Some days we would sit around and talk about grasshoppers. Somedays we would sit around and not talk about grasshoppers. It would be a roughly even but unregulated split. This could be the key to career satisfaction.
