Last week, a colleague at work died. To put this in perspective, he was a 20-year-old intern, still in college with what I assumed was a bright future and long life ahead of him. In every interaction we had, he was enthusiastic, outgoing, smart and self-effacing. He didn’t take himself too seriously and brought a levity to an office — and an industry — that often does take itself too seriously.
