“I’m a fool for getting involved with someone during a job interview!” said Tim as he rode off in the infamous “You’re Fired” car on The Apprentice tonight. Too bad he had to get fired to realize this. Now he’ll lose on both ends: the job and the girl. I just finished watching Tim make a weak case about his loyalty. No matter how hard he tried to plead his case, it wasn’t getting him anywhere. The bottom line is, he made a huge mistake by not staying focused on the task at hand: becoming the next Apprentice.
Tim at one time had this to say: “I should be the next Apprentice because I have always welcomed a massive challenge, and I approach everything I take on with passion and energy.” (source) It seems like his “passion and energy” shouldn’t have been directed so much on Nicole.
I’ve learned through the school of hard knocks that there is a time for everything. Priotizing is so important. If you get involved in too many things all at once, chances are that you won’t excel at any of them. Such was the case with poor Tim: he tried to “multi-task” and ended up losing it all. Better luck next time! Hope we learn from his mistake.
Here’s a couple questions to think/comment about: should love always be the top priority and take precidence over everything else? If Tim and Nicole end up getting married, was it worth it for him to do what he did?
