Weekly quote.  I’m calling it: I couldn’t have said it better.

“Comparison is the thief of joy.”  -Theodore Roosevelt

Isn’t that the stinking truth?  Do you compare yourelf to the people around you?  To celebrities?  To the people who excel in your field?  Stop it!  Right now! It’s self defeating.  Compare yourself to yourself.  Are you making progress?  How’s that project coming along?  You’re better at your craft than you were last year, right?  I know you are!  So take pride in your achievemnents and forget about everybody else.  Have some joy!  It’s free!
