In most cases, listen to your customers and exceed their expectations.

The tricky part is staying on top of what they'll want next to continue to exceed their expectations and keep them as customers long-term.

So, getting the sense of direction is important. I get that but the question is how do you get that direction?

The latter part of your post is the key as well as the enigma of business. You have absolutely no idea what IS the right direction.

Precisely! If you are to remain in business you have to be very dedicated and ensure that things are moving in the right directions.

Yes, the upbringing of kids is a difficult proposition and one should be very careful in what is being taught to the children.

Don't believe that we WERE EVER in control

The whole thing goes a lot like a recent "Dilbert" cartoon, where the boss points out that their bonus depends on people that they don't know and have never met. We stopped being in complete control of our destiny about the time that we started to barter for goods and services, and it has gone downhill from there.

And I agree thatr while the original intent of the stock market was to allow for capitalization of business, it certainly has degenerated into a means for speculators to gain income without earning it and worse, without producing anything of value at all. Which, functionally is theft, although the current laws don't see it that way. If there is a solution it will probably be very painful and injure a whole lot of folks, but I don't see any real solution that could be implemented. After all, how in the world do you get rid of greed and avarice that are so deeply embedded in a culture? I think that probably we will be "riding this train until it crashes", which will not be any fun at all.
