It occurred to me recently that spending time comparing ourselves to others is a lot like driving with our eyes focused on cars around us.

[Are they not better than us? Look how fast they’re moving, oh wow look at that one]

Of course, it turns out to be a horrible way to drive because it is both unsafe and unproductive.

We are always better off:

a] Being clear about where we want to go; and

b] Staying focused on the road ahead.

It is a better and safer way to drive.

It also turns out to be a smarter way to live.
