We are invariably quick to look for weaknesses in others and to find fault with things that they might be doing. We often find it very easy to criticise. What we don’t do is consider ourselves and our performances in the same zealous way. We tend to be outward looking. We need to be more inwardly examining. We need to fix our own faults and shortcomings rather than letting them pass through to the wicket-keeper, preferring to look at others rather than self examining ourselves.
Working with others to help them improve performance is fine. But let’s make sure that we’re working on ourselves and not ignoring our own faults and things we might do better. To do so (that is self ignored) is little short of hypocrisy.
