Jon, well said. Lack of that awareness leads people to think that everyone else is less valuable, than the “self”. I just had a funny experience from a 30 year old wantrapreneur behaving the way you just described, asking his “co-founder that he is 400% more valuable than the other co-founder, nothing has been created beyond a plan by this supposedly, 400% more valuable co-founder, while the other guy had created a working product and bringing in 100K in seed capital from a reputed VC firm”.
This blogpost is well timed one from my recent personal experience.
BTW, where do you find these topics day in and day out…. keep up the good work!
