Power Players don’t let the puny ones take away their time and attention. It’s because they know better than to let the annoying people nip at their heels and cause death by a thousand paper cuts.
Give no mental real estate to the people who are small in every sense of the word. They can be very dangerous because they are often exhausting and have a way of seeping into your consciousness without you even knowing it.
Power Players are careful to shield themselves from these dangerous types. They do this because they learn to recognise that it’s these seemingly harmless ones who can cause the biggest problems.
Power Players never let the annoying fleas get under their skin. It’s a red herring and it needs to be treated as exactly that. Learn to identify the puny ones fast. And then quickly decide to leave them alone.
