Here are four ideas for how you can make a bigger difference, and enjoy your life and your work more.

(1) Your job is to create valuable conversations.
Conversations are how the world changes for the better.
Nobody achieves anything worthwhile on their own. We make our lives better, and the lives of those around us, by interacting.
Newton, Einstein, Hawking . . . . all the names we typically associate with independent genius . . . . had to publish their ideas in journals, and give speeches. They started conversations. Then, and only then, were they able to change people’s thinking, and create new value.
As you start value-able conversations, you will make a difference.
