"Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option."Life is about choosing where to devote our time and energy, and Dr. Angelou's wisdom here serves as a reminder that we don't have limitless reserves of either to spend on those who are not worthy. Gotta focus on the individuals, companies and colleagues who see us as value-added partners and not as underlings.
Lesson learned: Run, don't walk, the other way as soon as you realize you're being looked down on. I'm building my own list, and humbly suggest you consider doing the same.
