I Don't Need to Compete With You

(Unless We're Playing a Fun Game) 202 People

    Work Only

    Life Is Not Zero-sum

    Why is it that some people always feel the need to compete ? ... That they're more successful in their career, that their kids are smarter, that their car is faster, that their vacations are better, that they're a better stock-picker, that they know more of the right people...

    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.

    No Need To Compete

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

    And I'm Not Going To.

    A very wise man once said: "But let each one prove what his own work is, and then he will have cause for exultation in regard to himself alone and not in comparison with the other person.: Galatians 6:4 (Apostle Paul). This isn't a competition and it doesn't matter to me what...
