The Inquisition

I have come to the conclusion that no one really wants your all. If you give your all, you are a fanatic. If you give your all, there is no room for flexibility (according to others standards). If you give your all, you face an inquisition of people telling you how it should have been done.

My question is this? Are we not taught to give everything 110%? To try our hardest, and to do the best we can with each task? And yet, when we are given these tasks, we are told we are too green to be truly making these decisions (even though they were fine with us taking over the task before we changed things).

I understand that I am just venting, and most people will not know what I am talking about. But maybe you do. Maybe you too have brought yourself fully into a task you were asked to complete, only to be faced with everyone's opinions of how it should have been done. Maybe the project is working out well, and the kinks are also being worked out. And maybe, you go in to do that project and someone else has ruined four weeks of hard work and changed the system. They have wrecked your project, and somehow you end up feeling guilty and like you should have done something differently. But this is not true. You gave it your all. You tried hard. You succeeded. But perhaps it isn't truly about success, it is about the other people's lack of control.

My rantings for the day. Off to face another Inquisition tomorrow.
