I spend my days with a group of people
who are courteous, appreciative,
very funny and hard working.
Many of them are at the start of their careers
but have already made significant contributions
to research in their specialist field.
I admire them for their energy
and their commitment to worthwhile causes
all over the world.
And if they have brilliant minds
I don't think it matters
that they are chronically untidy.
Especially if it makes my office
look like a Zen zone.
