    That Would Be Pretty Dumb

    If you want to "win" that bad at something then perhaps I would just let you because I don't have any worries or hang ups.

    A Taoist View

    Well, apart from learning by experience that competition leads to exhaustion, jealousy, resentment and so on, it is good to draw inspiration from past generations. The Tao Te Ching and the related writings of early taoists (Zhuang Zi, Lie Zi) illustrate with suggestive examples...

    No Need To Compete

    I dislike competition and therefore I can never compete with anyone.  I believe, competition is an act of jealousy.

    Why? Just Why?

    Okay. The life of an Asian student is never easy, because we have Asian parents. In my honest opinion, most of the older generations in Asia have OCD, because they get that insane drive to compete with each other, just for the sake of competing. There is something ****** up...

    I Don't Mind Healthy Competition

    ...but I don't need to compete for competition's sake.  I think it's great to have a certain amount of competition in academia and the arts, but ultimately, I don't care who is smarter or prettier or richer or poorer than I am.  I can't say that I have never wasted my...
