Jim's wisdom #4; Self Expectations

  At work today, a coworker and I were discussing what we had accomplished in our shift. We had been loaned out to work in another store assisting them in their inventory prep work. Anyway we were discussing how I felt like we hadn't gotten much done considering what was left ahead of us. The conversation took a turn torwards what level of self expectations each of us had for what we thought we should be accomplishing in the day. And as the conversation went on I began to think about the different levels of self expectations people might have for themselves. I came up with a few types on the ride home from work.
     First, is the person who sets high expectations for themselves and usually can obtain them. But, there are occasions when this person does not obtain these expectations. When this happens sometimes the fault is there own and sometimes the fault lies with things that are out of their control. Not always is there a positive reaction when this occurs due to the personal investment the person puts in. These people I would like to think are usually considered to be good people to have around. Since they know how to get shit done.
     Second, is the people who have some self expectation but, their level is usually what they think is expected from others, no drive to exceed what society deems exceptable. These people I would like to think these types people react more positive than they first since the level of personal attatchemnt isn't as high.
But, still good people to have around they are consistant.
    Third, and probably my favorite is the fuck nut. These people have no self expectation level. These people are the ones that no call no show to work. The ones that that sit around abusing the system and programs out there that are to give a helping hand, not a lifelong career. These people are just another part of the ever growing examples of how Darwin was wrong. These people aren't evolving they are multiplying like goddamn rabbits. I look around and  see more and more of them everyday. It is like a bad zombie movie that you can't turn off. These people are extrememly lazy they get the bare minimum accomplished in everything they try. No self investment in anything. We must combat this problem of lazy, stupid, unmotivated and non expectation having "people" by making it each and every person's mission to go out of their way to make the day difficult for these people. Make a game out of it with your coworkers and friends.
