The quest becomes clearer when you change “what do you do?” to “why do you do?”
Why do you do the things you do? Why is it meaningful to you?
If we can decipher our own ideology behind WHY we do the work, the “what”s become clearer too.
Knowing WHY allows us to put filters on our workload and to make better decisions about WHAT we should ultimately take on. And, more importantly, what we shouldn’t.
