What Game Are You Playing?
If you’re playing the short game, then by all means, do the fad diet.
Find the quick fix.
Don’t say what you mean, just say what they want to hear.
Don’t ruffle any feathers, and if you do— don’t worry about fixing them.
The short game is too short for that.
If, by chance, you’re playing the long game, though:
Your feelings are gonna get hurt.
You might forget how to play half-way through.
You might lose.
But the long game is what life is all about.
