Makes me think of the analogy about out swimming a shark and how you dont need to be the fastest swimmer, just faster than your buddies.

Wow, after reading this I realised some things I was failing at, and some other things that I was doing right..

Can't stress how helpful this article was, both personally and professionally, since you can apply the exact same principle to real life as well.
You definitely changed my perspective on several things and I'd have to say this is one of the best articles I've ever read.

Thanks for this amazing post!

I have one thing to say to this, I feel your description of warriors is inaccurate as being a former marine all of boot camp it is pounded into our heads that we aren't soldiers we are warriors. Marines are arguably the best military organization aside from special forces of any kind in the department of team work and relying on the guy next to you. Would you consider spartans warriors? they relied on the man to their left and right just as much as anyone else. I think the culture of said Warrior / Soldier defines how closely they work together with their fellow men in arms cause mercenaries would be considered soldiers by your definition and if you get 100 mercenaries all from different places / backgrounds who says they will work together well?

@DJ understood, I think it's just the semantics of the article and more of an interpretation, such as "Keyboard warrior" implies someone who is sitting alone in his parents' basement fighting internet battles all by himself.

I like this article it's very interesting...but I think a warrior could win because they can become soldiers.
