Vince Lombardi famously said, “winning isn’t everything it’s the only thing” or some variation on that theme. Do you think it’s true? I suspect the Denver Broncos think it is. It is true that typically, the runner up isn’t even remembered.
Sometimes our instincts are to minimize the value of winning. “It’s ok if we don’t win” or “I’ll land the next big client” – but is it really just a justification? We all lose from time to time in our careers.
