"I'm Doing Everything Right"

Just because you’re not doing anything wrong, doesn’t mean you’re doing everything right. The margin between right and wrong is vast, and can take on many forms.

It’s better to not be the one to acknowledge your performance. Just do it and listen. When someone else tells you it’s right, you’ll have the validation you were looking for.

On the other hand, the feedback might be that you’re not doing enough. To that, you must set realistic expectations, put your head back down, and suppress your own further commentary until you can listen again.

It’s alright to be wrong. But it’s not wrong to force what’s right.
