These blinks are about the invisible people of our society: those who work hard because of their own intrinsic motivation rather than the prospect of reward. Even though we can’t see them, they’re the backbone of society. However, current cultural attitudes are diminishing their role, and if we want to improve our world, we need to rekindle our appreciation for Invisibles.
