We know it’s a lot of work. We know it’s not going to be fun. We know you’ve got a difficult job ahead.
And of course that matters. Of course you’re under a deadline. Of course there’s pressure from the outside.
But you chose to do this work, didn’t you? You chose to bear these responsibilities, right?
So you can choose not to use pressure as a scapegoat.
You can choose to be grateful that this is the job you get to do.
What’s the worst tradeoff? Misery at the expense of time.
What’s the ultimate tradeoff? Satisfaction at the expense of time.
