The definition of work has evolved over the years. Just 10 years ago, who’d have thought that an “Influencer” and “Social Media Manager” could be legit career choices? 

But the coronavirus has drastically changed how we view work, and perhaps even permanently reshaped many aspects of how we work. 

Despite all that, work can still be enjoyable, if you truly love what you do.

The Great Room — a co-working space inspired by the desire for somewhere to gather, create and innovate rather than merely get things done — recently launched a campaign titled #GreatMindsNeverThinkAlike to highlight how multifaceted work can be. The objective? To offer a glimpse of how some of the greatest thought leaders in Singapore conduct their businesses and what inspires them to be the best in their fields.

Here, Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore’s Editor-in-Chief Kenneth Goh shares what work means to him, and the things that inspire and spur him on when the going gets tough.
