Feeling Stuck? Write Your Own Job Description
It’s common to want your job to give you a sense of meaning and purpose. When that isn’t happening, one solution is to redesign how you do your work.

Some people try fresh approaches to old tasks, while others break the monotony by deepening their relationships with clients or colleagues, Sue Shellenbarger writes.
