Talking to J about the work and responsibilities, he mentioned an anecdote.
Consider our main responsibility as 1 and other works as zero. If we complete our maintain responsibility first and then keeping doing the other works, our value increases as adding zeros to one would increase the value. 1000000.
If we keep prioritizing our additional/other works first and then deliver our main responsibility, it'll still be only one.
On to the main work now.
