Does Your Ego Get The Best Of You?
I've got a bit of a situation happening this week that boils down to a spitting contest. Certain parties are making sure that everyone involved knows their order on the totem pole and who should be underneath them. You know, making sure their precious egos aren't damaged. In my opinion, these large egos involved are impeding important progress. Although it's a bit of a pain I am sure it will pass. It always does. Unfortunately, it will likely come back.
We all see egos among colleagues, on the road, in the grocery store, and everywhere we interact with others. It happens. Many of us are guilty of showing ours a bit too prominently from time to time. Some more than others.
Today's post is dedicated to the ego, sometimes weak and sometimes strong. For some it can be completely consuming. The ego can be particularly large when there is a lot of money and fame involved.
Here are some links to articles about the ego most relevant to this blog - the sports ego.
