Candidate – Unimpressive

State of mind


Several times each week, one of the people at my firm finds themselves on the phone with someone who is underwhelming.  I often wonder why.  I know all the “80/20” rule stuff and that the bottom 95% make the top 5% possible, etc.  But do some people, at some point, make a decision to be unimpressive?  There are examples of impressive people all around us.  Why not seek to emulate them?  I actually think it’s rooted in laziness.  Some conscious, some unconscious.  What do you think?
