Early in my own career, before I became my very own boss and the CEO of Patriot Software, I was a difficult charging mover and shaker. I did so whatever was essential to complete the job. I took no prisoners, offered no quarter to failure, and if my co-workers couldn’t continue, I left them behind.
However, along the way of getting the work done, I often ran over my peers. I had no patience for those who learned slower than I did so. I had no patience for those who worked slower than I did so. I deemed them to be lazy, ignorant, and a waste of the business’s resources. I’d show my intolerance in my own day-to-day actions when you are short with them, not listening, and trumping their ideas with my very own.
