Let's hear it for the sage - the wise one.

Manic aggression is more likely to be part of the problem than part of the solution.

And the idea that these people planned where they ended up is likely wrong. Being an entrepreneur means being an opportunist. When a good opportunity comes up you grab it. This is one of the contradictions in this approach.

I'd like to know about the personal relationships of these people. If they adopted these kinds of attitudes with their family I wouldn't want to be around them.

I don't think business is war - I think it can be about building long-term friendships. And friends do respect each other's boundaries.

Great entry today Sonia, I like your view on this.

I hate to think anyone would leave behind a business or other dream because they didn't think they had that "killer attitude".


but, but, but, I always want to go to war

@Evan & @Jon, thanks to you both, and good to see you here.

@todd, That's true, but you also hate business, so it works out ok.


Gurus like those should look into the character traits it takes to be a successful parent. It's definitely not for wimps, but it isn't war, either. Couldn't be, if you want to come out the other side of the experience with living adult children who don't hate you.
