Messy Jobs are Never-Ending (Clean jobs a disappearing breed...)
Last update on .
Sitting here working I find myself reflecting on the fact that messy jobs are never "finished." By messy I mean jobs that are complex and multi-faceted and have no particular "right solution". In contrast, the clean jobs, the ones where you just need to solve a problem and know that you have the correct answer, no matter how large, are eventually finished. You find the correct answer and that's that.
Result is that over time, the whole world will become messy jobs.

True, so true. I also find that almost everything clients/customers want (as opposed to what you want, can do and see a solution for the hammer you possess), is messy by autodefault.
