I love this piece from Seth Godin:
"If the boss can write it down, she can find someone cheaper than you to do the work.
"Probably a robot. The best jobs are jobs where we don't await instructions, where using good judgment and taking initiative are far more important than obedience.
"The economy is now powered by connection, not industry. Connection and innovation and the instant movement of data means that the rules most of us grew up with are quickly becoming obsolete."
It's not about working hard anymore. It's not even about working smart. The new economy is about making connections.
