Patience or low standards?

So what is it? Are you patient or do you just have low standards?

Is it OK to allow a person to miss a deadline or should they feel the heat?
Is it smart to accept an under-performer for who they are or should you push for more?
Is it better to have high long-term retention of employees (or customers) even if they don't achieve to your desired level, or should you constantly rebuild your team (and client base)?

Who is the judge of all this? Who decides if you're too patient or if your standards are low or vice versa?

These are tough questions that I suspect have answers that shift on a daily basis.
