At an old job, I worked with a person I had been following for years and whose work I deeply admired. He’s not much older than I am, and we had worked in similar-ish jobs, but he just seemed so much better than I was at the time.
After a few months of working with him, it became obvious why that was: A crazy work ethic and drive, yes, but he had figured out what to do and how to react in situations that would’ve left me stumped. It seemed like he had a playbook for every scenario, and the next move was automatic.
