On Breaking Bread

by Nick Charney RSS / cpsrenewalFacebook / cpsrenewalLinkedIn / Nick Charneytwitter / nickcharneygovloop / nickcharneyGoogle+ / nickcharney

Every day at work around noon someone gets up in the office and turns to someone else and asks "Are we breaking bread today?"

The question ripples.

Within five minutes the kitchen is full of people.

We eat.

We laugh.

We voice concerns and celebrate triumphs.

We laugh a little more.

The true measure of office culture is whether people gather and break bread or swallow sadness alone hunched over their keyboards.

tl;dr - break more bread.
