The client did not need to hire you.
Work hard and practice more, especially when it is new.
Do not look for accolades from peers or extra pay. Do it because you care about your craft.
The industry standard is what you should exceed, because it is the middle of the line performance. There are thousands of good acts. The goal is to exceed and raise the bar of meritocracy.
I know the privilege of doing the extra work only helps and the habit of working wiser is necessary. With every practice, I get stronger and good things happen to those who practice in making their skills better. I will exceed meritocracy by a mile.
