Applications to life and work: The Mountain and The Viper

In preparation for the debut of Game of Thrones, season 5, I've been rewatching season 4. One of my favorite parts of this season was the much talked about trial by combat between The Mountain and The Viper.
There are many takeaways from this fight that can be related to life and work.
  • Don't get cocky.
  • Doubletap...err...doublespear
  • Finish the job at hand.
  • Don't gloat.
  • Don't ever get within an arm's reach of a ginormous angry dude who is being paid to kill you AND also loves killing people.
  • No matter how good or smart you are at a task or a profession, always be humble
  • Human skulls make a large mess when crushed, so plan accordingly.
  • Things tend to go astray. Always have a backup plan such as a manticore poisoned spear tip.
