The sysadmin paradox

The sysadmin paradox, n.:
The fact that when your system administrator is constantly running behind problems is perceived to be working and being productive, as opposed to being perceived as idle while managing a working infrastructure.

Our aim is to eliminate ourselves from the management of the system, to be considered as “not needed” because the system has no problems, therefore we do not work enough. Luckily, whenever (if) this happens, new more complex requirements emerge and the circle continues.
