How having superior information impacts your business development activities

Imagine this: you know someone who cheats obsessively. No matter what they do, they find some way to cheat. And they win. It is infuriating because you put every effort into doing the right things the right way. The worst part of it is that they always seem to get away with it. They always seem to win.
I think that when I play Go Fish with my kids.  Either they are psychic or they have somehow figured out a fool-proof way to win.
Either way, I lose because they have more information about the game than I do. Not only do they know what is in their hand; they seem to know what is in mine. That information gives them a leg up every time.
