Good business concept with copy spaceFlying to Boston from London on Saturday morning. 7 hours. Professional woman sitting in front of me. I duly swear, she did not look up for 7 hours. She produced more on her laptop than I do in … a week … a month.

I’m not touting workaholism here.
I am stating the obvious.

She or he who works the hardest has one hell of an advantage.
She or he who is best prepared has one hell of an advantage.
She or he who is always “over-prepared” has one hell of an advantage.
He or she who does the most research has one hell of an advantage.

I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t have wanted to challenge “the women in the row in front” in whatever presentation venue she was approaching.
