A quick excerpt:
Compare or begrudge the successes, sales, or careers of others: About
six months ago, there were a number of posts in the blogosphere about
envy and contentment. There was tremendous response from readers
confessing similar feelings. The drive to compare is such a gut-level
thing it’s sometimes hard to avoid. Some people are able to use
comparison as a sort of motivation for their own work. Not so with me.
Comparison leads to frustration and feelings of inadequacy...or feelings
of superiority, none of which benefits me. My friends’ successes don’t somehow negatively reflect on my own efforts. There
is room for all of us. Just because my career will unfold differently
from someone else’s doesn’t make it wrong and doesn’t give me the right
to be bitter with others’ success.
