Sunday Advice

Never try to be the best.

There is only one person who is the best and everyone else who isn't - which makes one person happy and all the rest miserable and even the person who is the best isn't really happy because one can never stay the best at anything forever.

Don't even try to be the best that you can be. This is even worse than trying to be the best, because you're being condescending to yourself. What does that even mean? Like there is some potential BEST you out there.

If you must play these silly games, then just try to be a little above average. Even that doesn't bring happiness because it makes some determination about people around you and your status among them.

Here's what I'm saying. Don't compete - really just drop the whole thing altogether from your life. Sure play sports and keep score, but the competition ends when the game is over.

Here's what I want you to do. Just sit back - are you sitting back in your chair? Okay, are you ready? Wake up! Really - just wake up from the system. Remove yourself from the system.
