Recently I found myself in an interesting situation at work.

I have been sitting comfortably on my office chair, slightly distanced from my desk, empty-looking on the computer screen that doesn’t display anything apart of my desktop with icons.

A bright observer from the “outside” can say that I am not doing anything, wasting time or even pretending I’m working. In reality, I got a brainstorm and debate with myself on how to do this and that.

This is how sometimes a job of Quality Manager looks like.
