We are not perfect, unfailable automatons. We’re messy, forgetful humans with limited cognitive capacities with the ability of having a to-do list that gets sidelined by nine hours of Zoom meetings.
Upon understanding this, there are a few options.
You can rail against this fact and try to be perfect yet be destined to fail.
You can accept this fact and do nothing, using it as an excuse for substandard performance.
Or, you can accept this as fact, yet still try to do your best while also understanding that even the best of us need to implement systems to support us in our attempts to perform at a high, yet imperfect, level.
As with most things in life, the choice is yours.
