In your business your will face many challenges.
Many “balls” will come your way.
Before you play the ball, look at the other player.
Most times, she is a fair competitive/adversary.
Sometimes, she’s not. Sometimes she’s a crook with faint regard for the rules of the game (ie: telling the truth).
In that case, ignore the ball.
There’s no point playing a game when the opposition is not sticking to the rules.
Don’t play the ball.
Play of the player.
