Always falling behind can be exciting but it is emotionally inefficient. The amount of effort it takes to come from behind is hard to conjure multiple times. Settling for a slow start and a good finish may be exciting, but it is also taxing. That lifestyle will eventually catch up with the individual or team and the comeback will fall short. This is true of people that create a lifestyle of overwhelming odds. That lifestyle doesn’t scale well and eventually the bill for the effort is more than the team can afford.
