It’s so easy to take things for granted. We know what we expect from our employees, partners, colleagues etc and it’s easy to assume those things will get done.
The reality is, we need to inspect what we expect.
If you own a restaurant and expect good food to be served every meal, you must inspect to make sure what is going out of the kitchen meets your standards.
If you are a farmer and want your crops to be of a certain quality, you must inspect your fields on a regular basis.
If you are an attorney and want all contracts to be error free, you need to inspect them to make sure they are done properly.
To inspect what you expect takes time and expertise but the alternative is to simply accept anything, regardless of quality.
Inspect what you expect.
Have a great day!
