Doing Less Than the Other Guy – Jimmy Spithill

Doing Less Than the Other Guy - Jimmy Spithill

“Rarely have I seen a situation where doing less than the other guy is a good strategy.”

– Jimmy Spithill

Jimmy Spithill, a world-champion Australian yachtsman, definitely didn’t get where he is now by resting on his laurels. And while competitive yachting is considerably more demanding than other fields, his bon mots apply to anyone who has aspirations of greatness, goodness, or even just not-the-worst-ness. Accomplishment doesn’t wait around the corner, ready to approach any leisurely stroller, and victories are not unceremoniously handed out to dawdlers for no reason – there are no walkovers in this game of life or career.

The more you do, the closer you get to winning. Want to be better than the other guy? Do more.
