It hard to balance
Everyone wants to work on things that can generate results directly, instead of backend which seems insignificant.
And everyone wants to go after the big fish, instead of the small ones.
This is especially true when you go up.
But more often than not, results are not entirely up to us. There are always factors we cannot control.
As a result, sometimes, the only thing we can do is the backend staff or the small thing.
In that case, doing the small things well is the only right thing to do.
It is hard because we have to convince or force ourselves to endure the boredom and suffer from the feelings that no progress has been made, despite our hard work.
And then it comes the harder part — to sustain.
Are we sure these are the only things we could do now?
How can we be sure that we are not using the small things as excuses to avoid facing the bigger problems?
And sometimes, the questions are justified because we are using them as excuses.
So we might constantly swing between the two ends. The consequence is usually the worst — we accomplish nothing in the end.
It is hard to balance.
But below can carry us a long way.
- Have a strong sense of security towards ourselves
- Maintain a cadence and habit that are satisfactory to ourselves
- Do not be a slave of laziness — do what you have planned
To us all!
