A Perfect World

November 22, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

It ain’t a perfect world.  My kids know that is one of my favorite lines.  Lloyd Carr, the old Michigan Football Coach was being interviewed on a sports talk radio show when he was presented with a perfect world scenario and he shot back, “Well, it ain’t a perfect world”.

For those of us in recruiting that is oh so important to keep in mind. Recruiters who are perfectionists or expect a perfect world are inviting frustration, wasted time and energy, burnout, or breakdown.  There are far too many moving parts in recruiting to expect any scenario to work out perfectly.

A clear understanding of reality and the uncertainty involved in any business deal is healthy.  Work hard, strive for perfection, but be smart enough not to expect it.
