If you don’t know anyone that is highly competitive with their own family members, then there’s a good chance that you’re that person! I know that’s definitely how I was with my sister growing up, as our eagerness to be the best can turn everything we do into a competition. Dishes need to be cleaned after dinner? Guess who’s going to clean them the fastest! Homework is due on Monday after the weekend? Looks like I’m getting it done on Friday night! Our competitive spirit lives on even now, despite us being grown mature adults with our own families and priorities. We also happened to go into the same field – heating, ventilation and air conditioning system maintenance. It’s a booming field to start a career in, whether you’re interested in repairing heating systems or air conditioning units, or anything in between. Anyway, my sister and I both decided to become HVAC service technicians for rival contractors in the city. When a local business puts a bid out for contract work, it’s a dash to get their business for my sister and I! As much as we love to compete against each other, we work incredibly well as a team. When we both were contracted into helping to renovate an office building after a storm destroyed much of the building’s equipment and outer appearance, we worked fast to get the building’s heating and air conditioning systems back up to speed and functional again. Still, we prefer going head to head for the sake of driving our companies. The best part is, no matter whose company gets a contract for business, there’s still a ton of work to go around for the other firm.
