Thursday Thought: Less Swagger, More Pirate

Whatever the craft, there exists inside of each of us these two conflicting forces. One that gets caught up in our victories, stokes our egos and inevitable leads to our downfall. The other force only cares for the next win and the fastest route to buried treasure. –Dave Jeyes

This is a nice post by my buddy and comrade at AddThis. In a nutshell, it’s not about being right all the time—it’s about keeping an eye on the treasure.

Often times we can get caught up with politics and trying to prove our worth and intelligence amongst our co-workers, but the team that wins will put all their egos aside to accomplish what is right. Ultimately, everyone can take credit for that kind of success.
