Entrepreneurs play dead

entrepreneur play dead


Most times the best way to deal with a problem is to tackle it head on. Show no fear.


But sometimes the problem is better left alone. Especially in the case of people.


Some people gain energy by you engaging directly.


No matter how good your case is, your attention is a form of validation and makes their case better.


Its at times like this that the best strategy is to, “play dead”.


Don’t take calls, don’t reply to emails, don’t retort to insults.


Even the most persistent of naggers will eventually wander off to find more fun fights.


Conserve your energy for where its needed most.


Play dead.
