Sometimes you need to play the player

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.
