3 ways to deal with competition – inspired by plants:
• Outgrow your competitors: groom and equip yourself to compete with your competitors when eyeing the common trophy. Spend your resources towards gaining expertise for that skill.
• Tolerate the conditions: Oftentimes, you are faced with limited resources. Sharpen your existing skill set to thrive in that so-called ‘harsh environment’.
• Do your own thing: After all, you are unique. Plug in your earphones and grow in a different direction to develop a new skill set that can be combined with your existing ones to add new value to yourself and prospective employer.
