Two Business Lessons from David Vs Goliath

I believe a strong fighter should always look dignified and calm, and any expression of aggression is an expression of weakness. A strong person will not be nervous and will not express aggression towards his opponent. He will be confident in his abilities and his training; then he will face the fight calm and balanced.

Here we examine two conditions for David’s triumph.

1. David believed in his capabilities: You may be asking what could a shepherd boy, who had never been on a battlefield or held a sword before do?

Research has shown that the stone David slung against him was moving in about a thousand oscillations per second, similar to the force of a “gunshot” while aiming for the most vulnerable part.

Size “does not matter”, “Capacity does”

Businesses with the right capabilities even though limited in size and strength can take on other businesses.

2. Goliath was partially blind: Goliath was believed to have been about 7 foot tall and suffered a rare disease called acromegaly (shortsightedness and double vision).

He never saw David aim the sling at him, he believed his amour, sword, and his prowess would make him tremble at his feet, but David knew this and used it to his advantage.

Some “perceived advantages” by an organization can often hide their even bigger disadvantages.
