Here are my experiences:
If you win the small game and lose the big game (by a lack of wisdom), you feel good but ultimately you lose and you think it’s unfair.
If you lose the small game (by a lack of attention to detail) but win the big game, you feel bad but ultimately you win, and you think your wisdom have paid off.
Isn’t there a win-win situation? Well, almost all those who can win both have successfully accomplished something.
