I have got into some arguments over the years owning this business. Usually over issues which should have been ignored. No matter how brutal the argument, to either side, I am not one to hold a grudge. Life is too short. I’d rather focus my energy on the future than on remembering to hold a grudge based on an argument last century.

I was reminded of this today when I was cleaning out some old files and came across the remnants of an argument. I had a laugh thinking back to the long forgotten incident. Time certainly does provide a valuable perspective on these things. I know that too often in our early years I got caught up in battles which were not important, especially battles around competitive sales situations.

Thankfully, we (I) learnt the lesson and stopped fighting too hard for business. When we did that we started enjoying ourselves more and winning more business.
