Editor: Matt, lately your heart doesn't seem to be in the job. Matt: Fair enough. Editor: You do good work, but you're missing more and more deadlines. When you miss deadlines, I miss deadlines. And when I miss deadlines, it costs the company money and scary people say bad things to me. Matt: I'm trying, boss, I am. But... I just can't seem to get interested in anything anymore. Editor: Hmm. I might have a solution for that. Editor: After deadline, I beat you like a pinata until stories come out. Interesting enough? Matt: I'll try harder, boss.
