Bagian pengantarnya menarik untuk anda baca. Jack Welch memberi judul Every Day, There is a New Question. Mengapa? Karena setiap pertanyaan akan memunculkan upaya untuk memberikan jawaban. Inilah yang akan membuat kita terus belajar karena sesungguhnya perubahan di dunia bisnis terus berlangsung.

Inilah salah satu pertanyaan yang saya captureHow do you find the right job?


Jack Welch menyatakan,  "You endure the same gummy, time-consuming, up-and-down, iterative process that all working people go through. You take one job, discover what you like and don’t like about it and what you’re good and bad at, and then, in time, change jobs to get something closer to the right fit. And you do that until one day you realize—hey, I’m finally in the right job. I like what I’m doing, and I’m making the trade-offs I’m willing to make." (p.256)

Di bagian ini, Jack Welch memberikan panduan sinyal apakah Anda menemukan pekerjaan yang tepat. Dimulai dari sinyal dari people, opportunity, options, ownership, dan work content.  

Salah satu sinyal di bagian work content: take it as a good sign if...the stuff of the job turns your crank - you love the work, it feels fun and meaningful to you, and even touches something primal in your soul. Sisi lainnya, be concerned if ... the job feels like a job. In taking it, you say things like, "this is just until something better comes along," or.."you can't beat the money".
