Why most of the wrong things are done by good people? The side-effects of unrealistic or unidimensional goals

  1. Setting unrealistic or unidimensional goals that lead people to reach them at any cost as well as promote a “tunnel vision” of their role;
  2. Fostering excessive internal competition reinforced by a “winner-take-all” performance evaluation system that encourages individuals to do everything to survive and not being seen as a failure; and,
  3. Using a language full of euphemisms or metaphors of war or games, which tends to mitigate the feeling that wrong things impacting real people are being made.
