Small victories ? if you can get enough of them, it can be better than one large victory. Today had several small victories, and added to those accumulated over the last month, they almost constitute real, significant progress at work, noticeably better than anything achieved by my predecessors. Is it small of me to feel so proud of this achievement? Or is it justified, having seen five different supposedly qualified people fail in this job over the last four years? Especially when for all of them, the job was significantly narrower in scope, a smaller theater of operations and less responsibility.
