Someone Else's Mistakes

If a mistake was found and it was someone else’s, it made me mad. Everyone else owed me the same perfection I owed them. Failure to achieve perfection interfered with getting the job done and, if the culprit worked for me, made me look bad. I never thought, then, that any mistake was tiny or that you should expect a certain number of errors in any work done by humans. I always demanded an explanation for the outrage (at least by my demeanor if not by my words.). And I always knew that any excuse they would come up with would be inadequate.

Doing the Right Thing
and Achieving All Your Goals at the Same Time
