Does your job happen to you?
If you're a willing cog in the vast machinery of work, it's entirely possible that the things that occur all day feel like they're being done to you.
The alternative is to create a job where you create forward motion, where you do things to the job, not the other way around.
Take a look at the language you use to describe what happened at work yesterday, that's your first clue. If you're not the one creating the change, perhaps it's time to start.
Seth always pushes my buttons ... gotta make some change today (and not just for my kids' lunch money)!
