We get up at AM on a Sunday to put out figurative, or even literal, fires. I think that we, as DBAs, can be better by embracing the ideas of “leadership through service”.
Leadership through service teaches us that we can best set direction if we best serve, best help, best provide an environment through which people can get what they need, but do it within a paradigm that also moves in a good direction. Help them get things done, but always keeping in sight your end goal of a safe production landing. The more manual your processes, the more pain you’re going to feel.
