get really good at what you do.
You have nearly unlimited strategic choices and options about your career and what your organization does.
Which means you can focus on doing things you are truly good at.
Or, if a particular task, project or career is important to you, you can do the hard work to get good at it.
But it makes no sense at all to grumble and do something poorly. To insist that the competition is playing unfairly. To try to persuade your market that their standards make no sense…
The market is selfish. It doesn't care a whit about how hard you're working or how difficult the task is. If someone else is consistently telling a better story (and delivering on it), the market will find them.
