Yesterday, in the office a colleague and I were in a friendly competition of seeing who’s post is going to come out on top. His blog post is winning, but not for long. The top three posts on our blog are Zombies and Aliens, The telltale Signs, Ace your ad agency interview and then mine in fourth place as of today is Burger King wants you to yell at them.
Friendly competition benefits the employee, company and client. Without the competitive drive you become stagnant and predictable. Then everybody suffers. Just don’t let it get out of hand and to a point where you push them to the floor for that last cookie.
So, after this little nudge of competition it made me want to come up with another post to see if I can surpass his next post. It made me realize that I am sure there are quite a few of you out there that have a competitive spirit whether it is at work or playing sports. I have it in both.
What are some things that push you to do better in your job? What gets you going? Do you have a co-worker that you try to do a little better than?
Bring it on!
