"It isn't important to come out on top; what matters is to be the one who comes out alive." (Bertolt Brecht)

When I was working for a Food Broker, it would seem that every year, whomever won broker of the year, for a particular manufacturer, would be fired the following year for the things they had done to become number one(If you know what I mean). The businesses who keeps their standards up are usually the ones that will survive.
