I went for a walk this morning around the park and I passed a whole lot of glum looking people on their way to work. Admittedly it was a rather grey Melbourne day, but still I wondered why everyone was looking so down. Was it the fact that many had just started back at work after the January break? Is this the human face of so many disengaged people in the workplace? Or is it just the momentary pain of transition and trying to crank up your mojo for the year ahead?
