Madness prevailed in my life when I moved to New Zealand, had a third baby and spent his first year doing 4 post grad nursing papers.
I saw the light about 10 papers and qualifications bursting out of my CV and regained my sense of humour realising that no one in the health services gives a monkey's uncle how much I've studied to be the best child health nurse I can be.
It only increases the frustration to recognise the possibilities for improvement and not be able to achieve them.
I once had a performance review and on asking my displeased manager to spell out the sins I'd committed was told three things.
The first two would only be understood by Maori. The third sun was ' Barbara, you are just far too enthusiastic '.
At age 56 and my first ever management role of 4 years and 3 months now six months behind me, I feel finally relieved of any further requirement in my life to strive for overachievement.
Thankyou Dr Bennet!
Here are the 10 principles of underachievement:
1) Life's too short
2) Control is an illusion
3) Expectations lead to misery
4) Great expectations lead to great misery
5) Achievement creates expectations
6) The law of diminishing returns applies everywhere
7) Perfect is the enemy of good
8) The tallest blade of grass is sure to be cut
9) Accomplishment is in the eye of the beholder
10) The 4-per-cent value added principle (or.. being alive is your greatest achievement)
Try to find it online or at your library if you can, otherwise buy it and pass it on to a friend.
