Why Underestimate the Competition

Bookmark and Share

Take Schmoshibooboo.

Schmoshibooboo might've been super successful in his school/community/organization/city/etc., but that could his ideas of his business skills when he competes against the world's best.

  • So, Schmoshibooboo doesn't take advice from others.
  • He relies on his 'piercing' insight to do X.

He ends up failing because he underestimates the experiences/skills/years-of-training of the competition.

Attaining Success in Context A != Attaining Success in Context B

For instance:

  • Jay Leno kicked everyone's %$^%^ during late-night, but he's dying in prime time.
  • Reggie Bush destroyed everyone playing for USC, but he's struggling in the NFL.
  • Taylor Hicks ran away with American Idol, but didn't run away with our hearts (KA-ZINGGG!)

One solution:

  1. See the competition as XX times better than you.
  2. Work XXXXX times harder

Beat Monstrosity.
