HUBRIS

Imagine this….a large corporate entity draws a line in the sand:

We are the most experienced; we are the most innovative; we have the best ideas; we have the best product; we have the best track record; we are fiscally responsible; our competitor has no leadership skills. Let’s let our product/service  and the consumer decide.

Two companies go head to head in battle; opps…the competitor wins.

Our entity responds:

We need to change but we are the most experienced; we are the most innovative; we have the best ideas; we have the best product; we have the best track record; we are fiscally responsible; our competitor has no leadership skills….

Reminds me of a long battle Ma Bell fought…with other antique land systems; with mobile phones; with Apple and smart phones…until they were finally left standing among the ruins of their defeat.

Ma Bell or WAIT A MINUTE – was it the Republicans vs the Democrats since 2008/2012 and perhaps 2016? It hardly matters. Whomever it was, it spells hubris and usually ends in a well-deserved defeat.
