Hi Gordon,

Sorry for my slow reply... I have family visiting town over Easter, so I've been spending some time with them...!

Who you work with is incredibly important. Are they trustworthy?

When you get into big trouble, it's often because of the people you're working with...

Harvey's 3 types of people are...

Number 1s: the good people to work with. Basically honest, and will do what they say they will.

Number 2s: these are the people who want a piece of the reward, but don't want to work to help you reach the goal. The way I see it, these are the "freeloader" types...

Number 3s: These are those with a "hidden agenda." They may say all the right things, but in reality, they have something else in mind...

I try to follow Harvey's example, and only work with people who I feel are "trustworthy" types of people...

I've come across another type of person. This is the person who so wants to do something, he "fools himself." That is, he convinces himself that he can do something or fulfil something which he can't really do. In the process, he also fools you... Though he's not doing it "dishonestly," since he's actually fooled himself into believing it (because he so wants it to be true)... This person can screw you up, too (though it is unintentional).

Best wishes,
