In a previous career, I was in the printing industry (20+ years). I learned a lot about the concept of "quality" in that career.
As professionals, we get to decide what we want to do, what OUR quality standards - as professionals - are. That is a concept I call "professional commitment".
More than once in my printing career, I told managers that if they wanted to fire me for doing the job in such a way that I was confident it would not end up in the dumpster, as a professional, I was FINE with gettin fired for that reason. (absolutely true story, I had to say it numerous times).
In this profession we are confronted with similiar challenges and my response is the same. If you don't want to put the minimum effort into doing the job right, then go ahead and produce crap,. But MY name won't be on it...
I guess its a different way of thinking about work than the more "modern" hired gun way.
When you go to a doctor and tell the doctor, "I don't want to go through a bunch of examinations, tests, interviews, see specialists, etc. I just want you to cure my problem in 3 visits max, at a cost of X max."
As a doctor what do you say to the person in your office who presents you with this? I say, sorry can't help you.
