Watch Out for These ‘Six Enemies of Greatness’ (Forbes)

All too often, we let our dreams topple as we settle for the ease, comfort and stability that other life choices offer us. But if you watch out for some pesky factors that can waylay us, you might have a better chance at accomplishing your plans and reaching those noble intentions you nurse, according to Jessica Hagy, a Forbes contributor. For instance, avoid committees. “Nothing destroys a good idea faster than a mandatory consensus,” Hagy advises. “The lowest common denominator is never a high standard.”


  1. Dear Bowdoin Daily Sun–

    I really enjoyed the link to the Forbes article (Six Enemies of Greatness). I’m dealing with some issues at work and with a potential career change, and encountering this very relavent article was perfect timing.
