She's never satisfied

prince_when_doves_cry

I hear this line from Prince's song When Doves Cry whenever I find myself being too critical about my children, fellow coworkers or anybody else I have expectations from. It's easy to pay attention to people only when they fail at something. It's much harder to keep track of all the great stuff they do but you don't notice because their actions are in accord with your expectations. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQp-yh1e-nY
