How to win honorably

Be the kind of victor you’d want to lose to.

If I lost a fight, I’d want the winner to…

  • Not apologize for winning
  • Not patronize me for losing
  • Stop fighting once the fight is over
  • Take whatever prize he fought for and leave alone whatever he didn’t fight for (and clearly know the difference)
  • Make a persuasive–not coercive–offer to join him and be on the winning side too
