Being Better vs Being the BestThursday, February 11, 2010
You don't win a poker game by showing all of your cards in the first round and hoping that the other players split their winnings with you at the end.
Some people like to wax philosophical about how there is no competition. It's a feel-good saying, but it's also incorrect. There IS competition and there always will be. A wiser choice would be to choose to ignore them, not to pretend that they don't exist at all.
You don't have to be better than your competition, you just have to be the best at what you do.
