Most times, all they need to do is crack on.
Their day-to-day involves doing a bunch of things they know how to do, for people in places they’ve worked with before, to produce results they’re able to predict.

Standard operating procedure.

You know that when you see people hanging around for your contribution, and you don’t care enough to give them your attention.
Skippy strategy: Remove yourself from some loops.
