If you have a good day at work in some jobs lots of people know – for example sports, music, or like today – politics.
Many other people have good days at work however and very few know – maybe a client, a patient, a customer, but that’s it.
But in order to get the applause, you have to do most of the work when no-one is watching – the work that you hope pays off on the big day.
So even if our work falls into the first category, we need to be comfortable being in the second. Grinding it out when no-one is watching.
