I hate the statement ‘Nice Guys Finish Last’.
My 27 year old rabbi used it in front of me at the Seder on Fridy and I set him straight.
‘What’s the timeframe you are using?’
Define Nice guy?
It’s a lazy way to think about life. Nice guys that I know are finishing first in every industry. I talk to nice guys in lead positions all day.
Quitters finish last because nice guys and even dickheads pass them.
