"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." — Lord Acton
Hieronymus Bosch: The Seven Deadly Sins
Said in 1887, these words still ring true today. But you should add, "Money corrupts, just as much as power.”
Finding flaws matter. After all, your strengths get you hired, your weaknesses get you fired. Yet most people would not know how many flaws they have let alone whether they have a fatal flaw.
There is nothing worse then finding out you can't advance due to factors you control.
