Lebron James Will Regret Leaving Mediocre Team
If given the choice between working with the best people or working with mediocre people, I will always chose to work with mediocre people because then I will be way less successful at doing the thing I love the most and have worked my whole life to succeed at! It's such a no-brainer!
"Hey, Mike, you can either have the best co-workers ever, or slightly lame co-workers. What do you chose?" Duh! I chose the slightly lame co-workers! Why would I possibly want the best co-workers? In what way would I benefit from that? Does having the best possible co-workers allow me flourish? Allow my business to flourish? Of course not! It's absurd! How can
If everyone did what he's done, we'd have successful, happy people everywhere! What a travesty this would be.
I mean, could you imagine if great actors chose to work with great directors? What's next?
Let's say I'm an astronaut. I need an engineer to design the best-possible spacecraft to ensure nothing goes wrong. Give me the worst guy! I don't want the guy who knows what he's doing! It would be an insult to all of the crappy engineers of the world to choose the best engineer.
It's painfully obvious and Lebron should be embarrassed.
Let's say I'm a really good schoolteacher. I want to prove how good I am by surrounding myself with less-good teachers. It's good for me. It's good for my students. It's wimpy to be, like, "I'm a good schoolteacher and I want to work with other good schoolteachers." Any schoolteacher who doesn't have the guts to want to be at a school where there are no other good teachers is a coward!
Furthermore, Lebron should be embarrassed for wanting to live in
It's an outrage!!!
Ultimately, I think Lebron will learn the error of his ways. One day he will regret having chosen to live in a city with a beautiful climate, with great co-workers. And we who have vilified him will rejoice!
Because none of us would ever make such a foolish, selfish decision.
