Too competitive

How competitive are you? According to Marshall Goldsmith, one of the best known executive coaches, we’re so competitive that we have to prove how much more miserable we are than others.

Marshall shared this week at the 10th Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna that when we come home and tell our significant other that we’ve had a hard day that sometimes we’re met with “You’ve had a hard day? Let me tell you how hard my day was.”

Even though they both had a hard day, it ultimately matters how we communicate, share and respect others. If we want to get our point across maybe we can try letting others get theirs across first.

Being competitive is healthy until it becomes more about comparing at the cost of others.
