There Once was a Man so Ambitious . . .

From today’s Wall Street Journal:

Research on hypercompetitors sets them apart. Intense rivalry is linked with a win-at-any-cost mind-set and a tendency to ignore the perspectives and decisions of others, according to a 2010 study at Harvard University. Other research shows highly competitive people focus on attaining status over getting work done, and readily put their own interests above others’.

There once was a man so ambitious

his coworkers turned very vicious.

One morning they fought

to throw him in a pot —

and stewed him till he was delicious.
