Don't we all have days when there just isn't the 110% that the world demands of us? You have to honestly admit that there are some days when you turn in 68%, and that seems pretty good, all things considered. By the law of averages, you cannot turn out 110% every day. There might be some laws you can get around (E.G. the speed limit, jaywalking, and some of the tax laws, if you are wealthy) but everyone must have an "off" day, and no one can beat the law of averages, no matter how much money they have. Even Bill Gates can't buy his way out of an "off" day, a day when they turn in a less than stellar performance.
I happens to us all.
There is no reason to be ashamed. Everyone has an "off" day. This is the reason that I believe in the pass system.
The pass system was introduced to me by my dear friend Roy Bentley. Until then, I had considered that people said, and did, things from an ongoing conscious mind that was always operating at full, peak efficiency, and was merely operating merely on their own set of rules and guidelines. For some weird reason, it had never occurred to me that I had caught them on "a bad day".
Dear friends have said things that I found hurtful. Bosses have given orders that were self- defeating. Children have told me how much they hate me.
All of these folks were having an "off" day.
Not everyone can bring their "A" game every day, and for those I care about, they get a pass.
I would like to say that anyone who has read this far, you get a pass.
But I might need one.
Just here and there.
