People can submit sloppy work for a number of reasons.
Perhaps they’re overloaded. Perhaps they have low ambition, and just don’t care. Maybe they dislike the task; or perhaps they have disengaged emotionally from their jobs.
When someone on your team produces sloppy work, it can quickly result in mistakes, miscalculations, and unhappy customers; and all of these can easily affect your team’s success in the long term.
This is why it’s so important deal with careless work promptly.

Anger is something that we all experience from time to time.
Controlled anger can sometimes help us to deal with situations more effectively – for example, it can motivate us to “right a wrong.”

This is why it’s so important to know when you’re getting angry, so that you can take steps to stay calm.
