Success contains both pleasure and pain. Working hard backlashes when the gains run out. That’s when you seek success elsewhere.
Everyone wants continued progress, positive results. The problem with this sort of thinking is that is causes perpetual stress and inevitable disappointment. One can’t possibly achieve promotion all the time.
Instead, try thinking about success in terms of preventing failure. Make sure the business operates smoothly and then success may come.
You can be both a pusher of pleasure and preventer of pain at the same time. Innovation excites while maintenance relaxes.
