I have a preoccupation with optimization. I guess if one has worked in operations, its a given?
There are 2 concepts that help with advancement, in whatever one is doing, with respect to progress:
- Changing things for the better has to get easier over time. Without this, relative to other stacks/places/realms, you’ll actually be retrogressing.
- It should also get faster, due to “compounding laws”. Finance people will easily understand this one.
In whatever you’re doing, if this isn’t happening, you’ll have to reexamine everything.
