Do it for yourself! | 15

DAY 15
Compete against an earlier version of yourself
Be inspired by others, appreciate others, learn from others, but know that competing against them is a waste of time.  You are in competition with one person and one person only – yourself.  You are competing to be the best you can be.  Aim to break your own personal records.

While this is absolutely true, it still can be tough competing with yourself and put a lot of pressure on you. Don´t set too high standards for yourself, or you will never meet them. Sometimes I remind myself (or sometimes comfort myself with...) perfection is boring.
