David Ogilvy once said that in order to have business partners, one must learn how to forgive.
Why? Because business partners are human, and humans make mistakes. Sometime they make BIG mistakes.
Yes, eventually you will find will out that the person you need in your business life more than anyone else is just as flawed and screwy and prone to insane acts of stupidity as you are.
This is where the art of forgiveness comes in handy. Because if you burn all your bridges, you end up not going anywhere.
Harder than it looks, I know…
