Sometimes a project can feel like flushing a toilet and yelling "go down, go down whilst making dramatic hand motions towards the earth"
It's pointless, the yelling and hand waving didn't do much to solve the problem but damn did it make you smile afterwards.
Do nothing 🐢
I want to remind you that not all problems need any involvement from you and actually doing nothing can be an extremely proactive stance.
How did I conclude this? 🍫
Yesterday I implemented some bugfix, got it tested and ended up rewriting it today to do the opposite finally to be told it was alright how it was initially 😶😶😶💢😡😤.
Despite my original protest I still did the work, cost me the day, had I done nothing.. well I could have enjoyed the sun and protested more but I might have come out of it even worse so who's to say? Should I have done nothing, could I have?

Best advice ever. I've seen another permutation of it, which is as follows.
Ugh, haven’t we all been there at some point of time.
PS you should really get a plunger, works like a charm for me. Not sure how it would fare in the toilet situation though.
😂 In a work context, the plunger is the product owner agreeing to your demands 🚁🛥️🍕💸💰
