I was at a business networking event the other day and, oddly enough, met my main competitor! My fiercest, most dangerous competitor!
This competitor has cost me countless opportunities and endless revenue.
I don’t say this lightly: he is a loathsome oaf of a man.
Lazy and unfocused.
Short-sighted and impatient.
Self-centered and greedy.
He plays the short game, not the long game.
The strange thing was his name: Philip Elias Morgan.
That’s my name!! (He kind of looked like me too.)
Yes, this is an aphorism, or at least an attempt at one. 🙂
Yes, my most dangerous competitor is myself; myself when I lose focus or patience or discipline.
Who’s your most dangerous competitor? Does he or she look a lot like you at your worst moments?
