Early morning. I have to run. I need to get to the office early. So many things to do! So many reports, meetings, and obligations. Problems everywhere!
I pass by a big dumpster and instinctively glance inside.
A man, lying among the garbage, looks at me and smiles. “Good morning!”
Guillermo Cruz is a Phd student in the School of Management at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Porto Alegre, Brazil. His research interests focus on the institutions of our society, how they emerge and are sustained, how they constrain individuals inside and outside organizations, how they are disrupted, and, especially, how institutions are immersed in the flux of objectification of human individuality. In his free time he likes to reflect about the futility of our modern life.
