When you think there is very little, if any, competition it’s easy to not bring your A game because you are confident your B or C game will suffice.
The problems with this attitude include the following
The competition might be better than you expected and your B game isn’t good enough
Even if your B game is good enough you might be helping the opposition believe they can catch up and belief can be an amazing attribute to have
If you keep using your B and C games, they will become your A game as you will lose your edge.
Whether we are talking about a sporting competition, a business opportunity or just everyday life, try to bring your A game every time.
Have a great day!
