Most senior roles, technology or otherwise, should be able to strike a good balance between solving existing problems and creating new problems. In aggregate, they should solve more problems than they create, and this is how we make progress; fulfilling general goals but also agitating for improvements. One of my line managers once called this "looking for the right kind of trouble".

This is a great idea, which I believe I've seen Julia mention in the past, and I definitely agree that this can help with making sure you remember what you've done! In a previous job we had 'monthly status reports' which were an overhead at the time, but when leaving the job (as my placement year was up) I was able to look back at all the stuff that I'd achieved.

I like to get microfeedback from colleagues, so throughout the year I'm getting bits of feedback on things I've worked on, so for 6-month checkins I've got lots of evidence.
