Work used to mean doing what your told. You had a boss and he told you what to do in a very literal sense. You always knew where you stood, what was coming down the pipeline, and when you would be done.

Work is no longer that simple. Work today means figuring out what needs to be done next. And figuring out what needs to be done next is incredibly difficult because the pipeline still exists. So when you are done with the obvious things, making calls, taking meetings, updating your website, you can feel restless, wondering what to do.

This is the struggle. This is where real growth and change can happen. If you can figure out what to do next, you’ll win.
