MindHack Digest: The Great Italian Rivalry

Happy Monday!
Once, there lived a boy in Italy named Ferruccio. Born to grape farmers in the Emilia-Romagna region, he was always more interested in the machines involved in farming rather than the activity itself. His family wasn’t exactly well off, but owing to his tremendous mechanical know-how, he started manufacturing tractors; the business took off and made him a wealthy person indeed.
He was the owner of a Ferrari (amongst other cars) but noticed that Ferrari’s cars had inferior clutches, and he was also not too happy with their after sales service.
So one day, he went to Enzo Ferrari himself with the hope of bringing these flaws to the great man’s attention. However, Ferrari was too arrogant and said that he didn’t need “a tractor maker’s advice,” and turned him away.
This provided the motivation for Mr. Ferruccio to go one up on Ferrari, and to start his own automobile company, which exists even today; and if I may say so, is doing rather well too.
Oh, and before I forget, Ferruccio’s last name was Lamborghini.
There is no good or bad without us, there is only perception. There is the event itself and the story we tell ourselves about what it means.” ― Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph
