In our personal and business life, we sometimes find ourselves saying that ‘the others’ are not accurate / precise / rigorous enough when doing a service or something.
I don’t know exactly why but I have a couple of ideas on why we tend not to be rigorous:
- it’s not TRUE: some tend to be more rigorous than others. Who’s more ‘task oriented’, as a natural mind set, is generally more accurate. Who’s more ‘people oriented’ is less interested in being accurate: he is usually more focused on values;
- being not accurate give us margins! Margins are good to ‘adjust’ things, are good for excuses, are good for persuasion.
What’s your idea?
