Yes, I agree with the statement that "NICE GUYS FINISH LAST. "Generally, in most of the cases, nice guys finish late but not late. They finish it late to make the work more effective and interesting.

Even though they are late to work they feel happy to discover something new to the society within time.

Nice guys are humble to let others speak first. Nice guys are well mannered to present their presentation in the last cause nice guys know that it does not matter where you go first or go last good things are aways appraised by others irrespective of the timing. More over nice guys take their own time to prepare well for any upcoming venture and they tend to give the perfect touch to their project so it is better for them to be patient rather than fool.

In my point of view finishing the work perfectly matters a lot. Nice guys first prefer to collect complete knowledge and experience from the ones who already did that work. During this period they develop their brains to think laterally. Nice guys don't care about finishing first or last. They complete the work in their own way. Generally, perfection takes some extra time.

Hello, Today's generation is very smart in taking decisions and also has very high potential, confidence, self-belief, try to go fast to reach to the top of the world. But sometimes it could face large implications and due to this confidence losses and there in mind we think that if he/she loses they get nervous, depression by this they fear of losing and they reach at last and the one who takes smart decision and think with proper way and stay in positive thoughts then he/she can win and finish at last or first. In race, there, the one who comes first is winner for world but if someone comes last he thinks there he/she loose and the game is over. There are so many people who are not having all qualities but they develop, train themselves with positive thoughts and win. If someone who is the last rank in previous competition does hard work, thinks where he looses focus and grows with positive thoughts then the last on also comes first. So the nice guy finishes last by proving himself as first.

Nice people never finish last. They always emerge as the winner in the end. The problem in today`s world is that most people try to take shortcuts which at times is either illegal or unethical. These people might get the desired result but in the long run, face serious repercussions.

Unlike these people, nice guys always measure the steps they take, make sure they proceed in the right direction and no one is harmed by their actions. They dedicate themselves to everything they do and make sure their actions yield positive results. The whole process might take a little time but the end result will always be fruitful.

Hello, friends.

In my point of view, the statement "Nice guys finish last" is not always true because being nice in any work produce output which Is far superior from being first without being nice, so whatever things, idea, plan. Nice guys will always be a champion in every aspect.

Recall the story of tortoise and rabbit. As rabbit lose the race overconfidence but tortoise was a nice guy. Hmmm. People honest, work in proper manner and idea to complete work in a "kind" way are nice guys. Time is not a measure in their dictionary but work completion with the more effective outcome is their highest measure.

So they finish last.

Hello all,

Neeraj.

As per my understanding, nice person is that person who works hard always with full of attention so taking the first step or last step doesn't matter because whatever will be done so that task will take place as per the situation and that time can face anytime whether it be first or last. We consider always last because whoever will take place in last so that will remain to remember.

Good luck !

I'm not preferring that "nice guy finish last", first of all we have to know what is the meaning of nice in here. #nice like to be responsible toward his work what he has done, or another hand in nature. Nice guy always complete their work systematically and correct. Doesn't matter last but in a giving duration. That is mine, and the other key point. His work is better than another.

If I have to consider a nice enough guy then it's really not necessary that he will finish last because I have seen many people who finish 1st because as said by some person above 1st impression is the last impression then obviously when a nice guy comes in front of someone then his 1st impression is counted which is very good and then he finishes 1st.

Nice guy always wants to complete its work 1st. To make good impression. And he never hesitate to work overtime and make it on the time. So from as far as my point of view its never necessary that he always comes last.

"Nice guys finishes last", this may be a true statement for a short term. But for a long term consistency it is a nice guy who ends up successfully. Dealing with shortcuts is smart and it may give a person an illusion of him getting all he wants. But a famous proverb says, "God provides a bad guy all he wants, but won't help him at difficult times.

But he does not give everything to nice guys but he never forgets to stand by his side during difficulties". The proverb looks lengthy because its a translation of a Tamil proverb. Last I would like to say that nice guys finish last for a short run, but in a long run he will win.

"Nice guys finish last". According to me What you achieve, how you achieve and the outcome of the achievement matters and not the position whether you achieve it on one go or after n number of attempts. To achieve something significant one must follow the correct path with full determination, honesty and hard work that a nice person can only do. He may get success in his later part of his life but the success which he will get will be permanent and not short lived.

Actually nice guys do their work with proper planning and thinking. So there planning may take time. But we all know that proper planning means half of the work has done already. But after planning they try to do there work as fast as they can. So nice guys are not finishing last at all rather they want to do it first and be an example to others.

Nice guy always think before doing any act. But foolish people act then think. As nice guys think before so although they are late comers but comes with strong action. As we know action speaks louder than words. They ponder over the matter from every angle then come to ultimate solution i.e. approaching towards perfection. While many people get tangled with facts after doing anything. For example many youngsters love to a person without thinking anything and get into trouble.

My dear friend Sankar,

When a thing is done last it means it is done late. May be he could finish the work within the given time but before him many would have completed in a better way. It cannot be always good to be in last. Waiting to get an experience is good but waiting till last is not preferable thing. So nice guys can do a work in a better way ranking himself first.

It all depends how we all define the word "Nice" here. It is not automatically implied that "Nice" people are always ethical or speak true or do good things. " Sometimes flattery people are also termed Nice people. Who cares!

I totally do not agree the statement "Nice Guys Finish Last" in contrary. Nice guys get things done easily and quicker than any other can. They know how to handle people and to develop relationships.

Whatever. This is what I think.

Nice guys will always have the own idea.

They will think out of the box and try to make something good, better and make feel different. It can differentiate from the normal person from that guy. That makes him feel preferable and achieves him a perfect one.

It is an interesting topic that we have been given here. The unique feature is that it can be comprehended in different manners. One of them could be that a nice guy essentially defines a person who plays by the book and is morally and ethically astute. He stands by his ideals and principles come what may. Such approach to life may be beautiful and inspiring but in today's cut throat world where survival of the fittest mantra holds supreme being on top may mean compromising on those beliefs. Those who adapt will prosper while those who don't shall perish.

I think topic indicates those people remain as dark horse but at the end they come out with wonderful results. They are nice in the sense that, they have better strategies and out of box thinking. If you remain as dark horse nobody would be expecting from you to win and due to which there will be no pressure on you to win. You will have only to gain and nothing to lose. If you think like that you have obviously better chance to perform well.

The ones who work wholeheartedly with dedication but are slightly gullible is the meaning of 'nice' I'm taking into consideration. I don't exactly agree with the point -'the nice ones are accepted by all'. They are honest and straightforward and long for perfection which may not garner everybody's votes.

Also, they may lose out on a few things where smartness works than perfection and end up being among the last ones which they definitely don't deserve.

Good day friends,

The quote "nice guys finish last", means a person who is smart, courageous in doing given task. He works with his colleagues by taking their suggestions, involving every member in his team. If he is alone that means solo performance, he will take valuable suggestions from his well wishers preparing them into notes. He will engage with his friends to complete a job, just like group discussion meant for evaluating a perfect solution for a problem by a reasonable discussion. Roughly we can name him as "LEADER".

Nice guys finish last it means three points.

1. He use the time completely as much as possible output he takes from that precious time.

2. He does the things in his own way and definitely leave a way to follow for others.

3. He never try to come first as his deeds makes him the no 1 automatically so he won't mind of doing things slowly but perfectly.

Nice guy probably the one who is not studious even the one who is good in attitude acquainting the positive path. He adopts optimism and tries to accomplish the tasks in a honest way. These nice guys finishes the work last which the result of their quest of perfection. Though the work may be perfect it lags with respect to time. Anyways in the longer run these guys may be benefited and yields to fruitful results. But at the same time it must be remembered that time end tide waits for none. Summing up in simple terms it can be concluded that these nice must perform the work in smarter way rather than in perfect way.

First of all, we need to define what a Nice guy here refers to?

Be it a nice guy in studies, nice in nature, nice in thinking. Nice can be termed as Noble, Innovative, Challenging and Eclectic. So if a guy is noble definitely he is not going to find out wrong ways of doing things which now a days most of the people do.

If he is innovative and likes challenges then he will try to do things in a different way. And being Selective and meticulous about his work, definitely will take more time than others but the result will be definitely be Epitome of that field.

It is not necessary at a nice guy always finish last if he does last that is only because he does things with perfection. I am quite against the motion because nice guys does not mean that he does things very slowly with perfection rather it means that he is nice as he is smart, he know the approach to be followed. So I would say it does not matter to finish last or first for a nice guy rather matter is how perfectionaly he does complete for a given duration.

Nice is a nice word. It is a positive sign of a person. A nice guy becomes nice because everybody accepts him/her. This means that the person thinks positive about others. The psychology can react in different ways. That person really can feel bad when somebody hearts because of him/her. So, he/she may not push himself/herself to that extent which leads him/her to the top because people generally depress when they becomes second or so.

In another way, no body can last because life has no finish until death. The person loose one way win in another that may not be visible.

So, we cannot firmly say this statement because there exist both the sides.

No one in the world can be called as a nice guy, because doing good to one may cause bad to another.

Well a descent guy always has a great possibility to be 1. There can be very few instances where he is last. But there can be an apprised reason for being last. Some times it can happen because he strives for perfection or overlooks d syllabus or can look in to matters in a pedantic way, which makes him last.

I conclude agreeing to a statement that A descent guy can finish last. But not A descent guy will finish last.

I really liked the topic but the thing is how do you define a "Nice guy" ? becz I think its quite subjective topic and a person who is nice to one can be bad to another, so there is nothing like a nice guy.

But if I have to consider a decent enough guy then its really not necessary that he will finish last because I have seen many people who finish 1st because as said by some person above 1st impression is the last impression then obviously when a decent guy comes in front of someone then his 1st impression is counted which is very good and then he finishes 1st.

Then there might be some cases where even a decent guy with a good 1st impression finishes last because he spends lots of time in perfection.
