I remember this story from a while back (http://www.nerdist.com/2008/07/sf-man-looking-for-nemesis/). Chris Hardwick wrote about a guy who posted an ad on Craigslist asking for a Nemesis. The post was funny, and a little silly. But recently I've been missing the competitive nature of a big sales office. We're a small firm, so you don't have that same spirit of competition with different teams or departments. So... I have recently picked a Nemesis. I'm not looking to completely destroy this person... but I definitely want to "beat" him/her. Why not? Everybody needs a reason to wake up in the morning :)
What about you? Do you have a nemesis creatively? Personally? Professionally?
