No one likes to spend a lot of time on something simple and work hard when it's not rewarding... Time, attention, money should go to areas that pay off in the end, else your strategy will soon be debated!
|Keep a light approach to preserve the fun in your work|
By keeping a low key approach to what you have in your plate, you get used to spending the least amount of energy to move forward. That's a very efficient way to go and you always have extra resources to spend if needs be.
There will always be difficult people around, using obscure technical vocabulary and doing things the hard way, sometimes forcing it on others. Keep yourself out of it with humour and a light jokes to make do a tough situation with a fun attitude!
