“Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up.

*New project assigned*
Write an Encryption Policy and Standard... from scratch
Draft policy in a week and a half

*Glass half empty*
A week and a half? From scratch?! Having only been here for 3 months?? For an infrastructure of this size?!?! <enter impostor syndrome> 😰
