Do you trust yourself?

I hope the answer is yes, that you can rely on yourself.  But there may be times when you cannot and should not.

What is trust?  One definition is:  Reliance on integrity, strength, ability, surety, of a person or thing; in other words, confidence.

It is very easy to get caught up doing something that you think is clear and straight forward, but there are times when another set of eyes could save you a lot of hassle.

The old adage, measure twice, cut once is a good lesson.  Only, rather than you doing the measuring the second time, get someone else to do it.

I would change the saying to ‘check twice and implement once’.

I am fortunate to have a number of people who help me check my work.  I am always open to positive critique.  Criticism can be very negative, so make sure you set the rules with whoever you get to give feedback.

So, if a task is important and needs to be right, get the help of someone you trust to check out your work.

Manufacturing companies use an inspection function to ensure that their products meet the required standard.  In the ISO 9000 standard it states that a preventative activity be put in place so as to remove the errors before they can occur.

What system or process will you put in place to make sure you do things right first time every time and get people to trust your product or service?

There are many ways to check what has been developed, from a simple checklist to measuring equipment set to specific criteria.
