This is a re-iteration of a previous theme, but it is a potent one so here it is again: don’t think about how to do your job better.
Instead, think about how to make yourself obsolete. The best way a job can be done is by having things run so smoothly that you’re not even needed anymore.
The difference between the two approaches is that the first one is only incremental and leads to only marginal improvement. The second one shoots straight for the target.
All things being equal, how you think about things is what gives you the edge.
