Does this sound like you?
Right is right and wrong is wrong.
I know the right way.
If you can’t do it perfectly, don’t do it at all.
Others too often have lax standards.
I hate mistakes.
I need to be more organised and methodical than others, so things get done.
As a business leader you are undoubtedly a driven individual – you wouldn’t have got to where you are now without striving to complete and achieve goals for the benefit of your company and those around you, but all too often a need for perfection and organisation can have a detrimental effect, not only on you, but for those around you.
What’s wrong with that?
You may try to justify these thoughts to yourself through a sense of personal obligation as a key decision maker within your company or at home - you might think “It’s up to me to fix this”, or “there is clearly a right and a wrong way to do this and I know the right way”, but these thoughts and the consequent decisions made by you have a wide-reaching impact.
For yourself, this thinking may become a source of ongoing anxiety and frustration; causing you to become critical of yourself, more tense, more opinionated and often leads to you working overtime to make up for the perceived shortcomings of others.
Your constant frustration and disappointment with others for not living up to your ideal standards are a major cause of resentment, anxiety, self-doubt, and resignation in others, who feel continually criticised and resign themselves that no matter how hard they work they will never please you. This can result in, reduced enthusiasm and reduced flexibility in dealing with change.
