Taking a longer term perspective on your work almost always makes it better.
Since most of the great benefits in life come from compounding interest, you often won’t see the biggest returns on your investment until far in the future.
Life is a long term game. But unfortunately we’re constantly pushed to think in shorter increments and measure outcomes as fast as possible. Whether it’s the quarterly earnings report or the 3 month data summary, neither will show the true results of your work.
It’s not about the outcome right now. It’s about the trust you build, the growth you experience and the constant process of improvement. Take the long view and invest in yourself as a valuable asset for decades to come.
