A quote that so appropriately describes the situation I am in. Working with a slightly senior member for the last 3 years who never fails to announce how successful he is, how hard he has worked in his life, how many hours a day he works, how he was raised poor, and how he owns apartments in Italy, NY and Singapore.

Yet, working on our organization together, where I have been involved for the last five years while he came in to help it grow about two and half years ago, each day feels like a fight for power, struggle to boost ego, to establish hierarchy, to re-instate the seniority factor + 'market value', and take control of people and projects.

Not sure how I did not 'foresee' the power game early on, but in my first impression I did notice that uncomfortable and arrogant attitude about him. Not sure if I should be glad or regret that I still choose to listen to my mind and not my heart. Where I saw him talk arrogantly to a waiter - many people say that you can tell about a man by his attitude towards people below his 'standard'.

"For me it's always about first impressions. I trust my instincts. I love to prepare if it's something that requires training. But I don't like to prepare the psychology too much. I enjoy the psychology of the character but I work better from a first impression."
