Doubts will destroy you and make you question everything, This is happening to me right now. I thought I had found the job for me, something that each day I’m happy to go into work and get things done. My first doubt came in when 3 weeks into the job HR came in with the boss to have a word to me and list things that I should be doing which I thought ok no problem I’ll address them and get on top of it which I did and was feeling good again. But it wasn’t to last, just yesterday it was another similar meeting with even more points and questioning everything I do from as little as not emptying out the bosses bin in his office. And then the big question, am I out of my depths? followed by it doesn’t look like it’s working out. I wish I had an answer, is just over a month long enough for me to be on top of everything? am I just stupid? am I not meant to be a manager? am I not meant to be happy? what should I do? am I seriously that useless? where do I stand?
So many questions and I have no answers and I don’t know where to even get these answers from. I’m stuck.
You are definitely not useless. I don’t know the full extent of what your bosses want from you but if it is petty things like bins then my best bet is they have found nothing substantially wrong with what you are doing. Don’t doubt yourself over the insignificant quarrels of desk monkeys. You are better than that, don’t like them make you think otherwise.

Thanks mate, it’s such a hard predicament and made worse when you have nothing to fall back on if this doesn’t work out.
