Be wary of people that ask for power, prestige or position. If you give them some, they will likely ask for more. When you have no more to give, they will become or make enemies. Further, it’s far more powerful to be recognized or to recognize someone by surprise than to constantly be asking for recognition or looking to recognize someone. Promote the competent and humble few. Work for the observant.
Be ultra wary of people that don’t ask for power, prestige or position. They may have nothing to lose. People with nothing to lose are dangerous.
