“It’s you, not me,” or “It’s me, not you?”

What happens when you do not serve a customer in the right way, or you engage with an employee incorrectly, or you cannot work properly with a partner?

It is our natural instinct to blame the other individual in these situations. You think that your art is not matching what they expect, and it is the other person who needs to change.

The other thought is to put all the blame on yourself. You think that it is up to you to change so that they are happy.

Either situation could be the truth.

Sometimes it is hard to swallow, but this is the reality.

If you are not getting what you want from your work life, it could be because you are going too far in either direction, which is not going to help you at all.

Blaming other people too much will result in you being known as a loner or diva.

Blaming yourself will result in you pandering to what everyone else wants.

Mismatches are common. The idea is to grasp the opportunity to deal with them in an effective way, so that you can get where you want to go.
