Are They Doing Their Best?

Once upon a time (it could have been last month or 12 years ago) while reviewing the work of an executive, I asked myself, "Is this person doing his best?"

My first answer was: "No. He's making elementary mistakes in certain areas."

My second question was: "What if he truly doesn't know any better and this is his best?"

My third question was: "What if he knows it's sloppy work but he simply doesn't care?"

The initial question was a good one and it sparked the others.

Incidentally, I later decided the second question was closer to the mark.
