Sometimes your most significant accomplishment of the day is when something doesn’t happen.

Think of all the energy that goes into preventing a crisis or proactively problem solving: correcting false information so that misinformation doesn’t become an issue, double checking processes to prevent an error, maintaining equipment so it won’t break down, or even driving defensively to avert an accident.

It is easy to take satisfaction in the tangible outcomes of what we do, but it’s also important to celebrate the work that no one sees. Some of your biggest wins may come from extinguishing that spark so it never bursts into flames.

Thanks, Mike!
