General / Operations Manager in Frankfort:
"You Must Be Perfect."
In school, 90% correct is typically an "A". An "A" maxes out your GPA points, and that is what is shown on your transcript. In school, if you get an A then you look perfect. You look like you achieved everything you could possibly expect to achieve. In the workplace, A might as well stand for "amateur". Because, if you do a report or project and have a single number wrong in a presentation and it's caught then the rest of your entire project will come into question and everyone will instantly become almost paralyzed with uncertainty. So, your best case thing to do in school, or in work, is to get used to checking your work, having colleagues check your work and accept and understand that your goal should not be 90% work but work that you could bet your job and your life and your family's life that it is 100% correct. Might not be possible, but if 99% of the time you are 100% correct, that will be a start.
