Maarten,

What a fantastic piece. Thank you for writing it. I love your honesty, as well as sharing a simple, yet effective approach to continual assessment and improvement. Based on what I’ve read so far, I have no doubt you’ll see continued success.

As for the lack of enthusiasm in your research topic, what — if any — ways have you started to address this? Did you find renewed interest? Or discover something else to pursue? If so, how (for either answer).
