Dear Members and Constituents,
Amidst a whirlwind of activity, the siren call of business jargon lures unsuspecting white-collar workers to the treacherous waters of meaningless babble. Scholars shudder helplessly as “the ask” and “the learning” morph from verbs to nouns thrown about while “doing” lunch. We scavenge for low-hanging fruit whilst managing expectations because we were unable to take it to the next level. Dizzy yet? If not, let me talk around the issue and circle back to my main point: I may find myself talking in circles, but I prefer to talk about one circle in particular. Whether glazed or filled with jelly, the circle in question always livens my Fridays. You know the one. After years of ruthless re-prioritization to extract synergies, the Friday donut core team has met the street's expectations and stayed above the line. So, get your ducks in a row, put those pending issues on the parking lot and tell the world you’re out-of-pocket while you grab some coffee and a donut (the latter conveniently awaiting at my desk, courtesy of Mack Greene -donut boy).
