There’s a new apartment complex going up next to my house and like clock work, 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM, I hear boards shuffling and nails being pounded.
Routine, everyday, most of it mundane, and probably seems endless.
Board by board, nail by nail, hour by hour, 6 days a week.
And while I don’t see noticeable progress each day, I’m fairly confident they’re not just nailing random boards together and goofing off.
Eventually the apartment complex will be complete and the construction workers will be pleased with the outcome.
It reminded me of your Salesforce career journey and how you have to build at it day by day.
And you might not see much progress at the individual day level, but as each board is laid, each nail is driven, you’ll have the Salesforce foundation necessary to see your career start to take shape.
As the great Salesforce instructor, Ryan Scalf, states: “Chop Wood, Carry Water”, focus on the work that matters.
