You’re not wrong, Walter, you’re just an asshole

There have been many times when I had the right answer but still ended up at the wrong outcome:

The time when I educated a customer on what they ought to be concerned about instead of addressing their actual concerns.

The times I obsessed over the minutiae of how employees went about their work instead of focusing on key performance indicators.

The times when I listened only to my analytical brain and ignored my primal “gut” brain.

Note to self: Instead of being right, focus on achieving the right outcome.
