Megalomania


I appreciate LinkedIn's weekly news, but moreso I enjoy the tips and tricks of the highly motivated and professionally successful business people they quip and quote on there. Stories of failure, and stories of success. Stories of how failure lead to success - stories of why failure is paramount for success. Stories of how to engineer success through attitude alone. All the stuff those of us who are happy embrace and understand, and those who aren't publicly disregard as nonsensical bullshit all the while toiling away in their own self-importance - an interesting term that is rarely applied to ourselves, being a moniker we believe applies only to someone else.

Then there's this Thor guy, who comes off like some sort of Megalomaniac:

“The point is that you can never stand still. It is true for us as well. Launching BB10 just put us on the starting grid of the wider mobile computing grand prix, and now we need to win it,” ~Thorsten Heins

Because being a major player in any market isn't enough.

You have to control it.

What is it exactly we're supposed to be learning from him?
