Here to put in the work

Not to game the system or get around the system. Not to take the easy way out or to half-ass it. Or to phone it in. Yes, I can be lazy, shirk duties, and have days when my heart just isn't in it, but the standard approach I have to design is that I’m here to spend the time I need to put in to do the work. I’m not here to overcharge, do the bare minimum, or to get it done as fast as possible. (I suppose that last one depends on the deadline.) I’m not hear to automate the thinking, to do something that barely passes, or to even have something that’s just OK. No, I am here to put in the work. Sometimes I’m tired when I’m putting in said work, but that, I think, just comes with the territory.
