Compare and contrast, part deux

The terrific writer, David Halberstam, in his new book profiling New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick:

“This did not mean Belichick was without ego — far from it.  His ego was exceptional, and it was reflected by his almost unique determination.  He liked being the best and wanted credit for being the best.  But his ego was about the doing, it was fused into a larger purpose, that of his team winning.  It was never about the narcissistic celebration of self.”  (italics mine)

I’m not going to draw a road map. 🙂
