In Daniel Pink’s book “Drive,” he mentions two types of tasks followers of leaders typically accomplish:

1. Algorithmic – these tasks are led by a set of instructions that lead to one conclusion

2. Heuristic – these tasks are artistic and cannot be solved through a simple set of instructions

As one may deduce, heuristic tasks are what take the pie when it comes to innovation, profitability, and maximizing results. Heuristic tasks catch people’s attention, require special and creative thought, and more easily stimulate the success of one’s innerself.

Heuristic tasks change the world. Algorithmic tasks maintain it.

Go be heuristic today!

Go do something that involves your self and creates a sense of accomplishment and pride!

Go change the world!
