You’d like to know, or at least guess, where it is that you’re going—that’s called transformation with vision, value, and direction. However, change for its own sake is still better than no change at all. This is a sacrosanct “Joe’s Rule” in the world of improvisation—as soon as you get too comfortable with your situation, toss everything up in the air.

You focus on the doing, not the worrying.
