Jobs To Be Done, Personally

In the product world, we talk a lot about ‘jobs to be done.’

This is a helpful framework known as Outcome-Driven Innovation.

Examples of jobs to be done are:

I don’t want a shovel, I want a hole.

I don’t want a light, I want to be able to see.

Those tasks, become jobs to be done, which could be approached in many different ways.

Similarly this same mentality can be applied to relationships.

I want to be heard.

I want to be loved.

How we go about accomplishing those jobs has long standing impacts on our emotional and physical well being.
