Fame and Competition

Focusing on recognition is a recipe for discontent and bad working habits. Focusing on the work, keeping your eyes on the project at hand rather than fretting about getting noticed, is the antidote to the poisonous craving for fame and the unhelpful focus on competition.

If you approve of yourself right now, you will not worry about other people’s approval.

I aspire to shift from a zero-sum outlook when it comes to success – “she succeeded INSTEAD of me,” to an inclusive one – “she proves it can be done!”
