Amateurs Vs Professionals

Posted by on Thursday, April 20, 2017 Under: Career Advice



AMATEURS

Manipulate.

PROFESSIONALS

Make their counterparts believe the behavior/solution is to their advantage. No one likes to be manipulated. They don't mind being influenced, even if it benefits others at the same time. They just don't want to be a pawn in the game.

AMATEURS

Love publicity.

PROFESSIONALS

Want to stay out of the news. And if they're in the news, they like to control the story. Which is why professionals hire expensive PR people, because those PR people know the players, they can influence them and trade horses with them, because they both know they'll see each other tomorrow.

AMATEURS

Know it all.

PROFESSIONALS

Are always learning. If you don't learn something important every month, you're hanging with the wrong people, if you're hanging with people at all. The web is a fountain of information, but professionals will tell you stuff one on one that they would never put in writing.

AMATEURS

Bitch about the game.

PROFESSIONALS

Play the game, and try to change what they dislike over time.

AMATEURS

Boast.

PROFESSIONALS

Don't talk about their accomplishments unless they come up in the conversation naturally. They don't need to advertise, they're already the person.

AMATEURS

Burn the wrong people.

PROFESSIONALS

Burn the right people, if they burn anybody at all. Burning relationships can demonstrate power, but don't piss off the CEO unless you've got a chip to play against them.

AMATEURS

Need to win all the time.

PROFESSIONALS

Know if you never lose, you never really win. If the deal is one-sided, if leverage is overused, it will come back to haunt you.

AMATEURS

Are all flash.

PROFESSIONALS

Are subtle. They fly private, but they don't tell you. They drive a BMW or a Mercedes, not a Lamborghini. They blend in, they don't stand out.

AMATEURS

Believe life should be fair.

PROFESSIONALS

Know that life is inherently unfair. And sometimes you have to grease a palm or work a relationship to get what you want.

AMATEURS

Think they're better than everybody else.

PROFESSIONALS

Never forget where they came from and are aware they can go back there, so they might act entitled, but they usually go out of their way to be nice to the little people.

AMATEURS

Can only see what's in front of them.

PROFESSIONALS

Are always looking over the hill, around the corner. They're searching the unknown to see where it's all going, so they can be prepared when it arrives.

AMATEURS

Think nothing changes.

PROFESSIONALS

Know that everything is constantly changing, they're not wedded to the past. They don't lament the death of Main Street and manufacturing, they're all about the data.

AMATEURS

Put all their eggs in one basket.

PROFESSIONALS

Spread the risk. They know the only person who wins all the time is the one who does not play.

AMATEURS

Have false modesty.

PROFESSIONALS

Own their success. They're confident.

AMATEURS

Expect to win right away.

PROFESSIONALS

Know that success is elusive and hard fought and that a momentary blip of success at the advent may be just that, momentary.

AMATEURS

Are afraid.

PROFESSIONALS

Are self-assured. They roll with the changes. They don't get thrown off guard. They're cerebral. They don't fly off at the handle. They absorb the loss and figure out how to punch back.
