Life Ain’t Fair

My eight year old daughter will come to me after a netball match and complain another girl was able to get away with fouling her repeatedly and the referee ignored it. My advice always is you need to adapt to the referee’s interpretation of what is and isn’t permissible on the day, and accept it. Why should that be any different for Serena Williams in her sport? That there are inconsistencies is a fact of life in the real world. The same applies in business, there are management, suppliers and regulators, who give different interpretations of what appears the same policy. Deal with it and move on. Stop playing the “victim”, it demeans you and your legacy.
