At the end of the day, there are two kinds of work.
Hundreds of different jobs – but only two kinds of work.
I call the first kind is “what you are told”
The second is “doing what you see”
The first kind of worker plays by the rules – usually rules made by someone else. They follow procedures and are evaluated primarily on their conformity to the rigid structure of their job or their industry.
The second kind of worker is given a more fundamental kind of dignity.
We’re asked to press in, look close, study hard, ask questions, and do what we deeply think is right.
This includes entrepreneurs, scholar-teachers, and government leaders.
That’s what we get paid the big bucks for – being humans, not cogs.
Work with MTTB and become a self-starter, a problem-solver, a star consultant, and a very wealthy person.
Most importantly, live a richer work-life.
