A parable about a farmer who left his land to go search for diamonds elsewhere (sadly he ended up drowning himself when he couldn’t find them), but low and behold he was sitting on a diamond mine in his own backyard.
Maybe, you’re also sitting on a diamond mine in your current Salesforce org.
A diamond mine of knowledge to be discovered that is…
If things are a little slow at your company or you’re waiting for a project to get approved, this is the time to start digging.
Especially if you’re in a seasoned org, where there’s been many individual hands in it.
You’d be surprised how one diamond (or maybe a time bomb) that you discover may lead to another that leads to another.
An opportunity to learn something new, dig a little, see a shiny object, ask some questions, trace some processes or Apex execution to get a greater understanding of how things were designed to work.
Maybe, try to rebuild it in your Dev org, piece it together, see if there’s a way to improve on it, move it from highly custom Apex to declarative functionality.
Create your own mini-project.
It builds your confidence, your analytical and technical skills, as well as showing your management team that you’re no slouch.
Your Salesforce Acres of Diamonds awaits you.
