Keep On Keeping On

Grit Your TeethIt may be the weekend, but that doesn’t mean that we can take our foot off the software support pedal. As with most websites, our traffic is higher in the evenings and at the weekends, when people who work all week have the time to surf the web.

Fortunately, the winter weather makes it less disappointing to be stuck indoors and be tied to the PC. There is a real feeling of satisfaction in resolving issues for our clients. It’s also nice to get the ‘thank you’ emails dropping into my inbox as people appreciate that we are still working out of core hours.

There was a point earlier in the week, when the emails were coming in faster than we could respond to them. A real feeling that we were losing the battle, baling as fast as we could, with the water still rising fast. But the new version of the product has reversed the trend, with people writing in to thank us for our efforts and even offering to help.

So the moral of the story is to keep your head, keep on keeping on, and your efforts will see you through in the end. Naturally, this applies to all aspects of life, not just to software projects, so keep your chin up, grit your teeth and press on regardless, knowing that good things will come out of it in the end.
