It's easy to chalk achievements up to good fortune and to underestimate the value of investing in achievement each and every moment. We tell ourselves, the teacher worth millions of dollars is simply blessed. How could a teacher make millions? The answer is that she played the long game.
The long game is not especially notable and it doesn’t draw attention. It is dull. It changes the way you run your own personal and business affairs.
There's an old expression: If you do exactly what everybody else is doing, then you should not be surprised to receive exactly the very same results everybody is getting. At Latchel, we’ve made this ethos a part of our leadership principles and company culture. Essentially, the long game means telling yourself: You can’t get better by staying the same.
