A friend recently turned me on to the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. To learn to add a “leap of faith” to my decision making. As I grow older I find myself caring less and less about how I compare to others. I make educated decisions based on my research, the advice of those I feel have experience in the area, and friends and family. It’s not that I think I’m better than others. Quite the opposite. I realize there will always be someone better, faster, smarter, or richer. And at the same time I will have more of each than someone else. In my opinion, to dwell on the comparison of myself and my results to others doesn’t help me improve. I now care about how I am doing compared to my own goals and benchmarks. I’ve learned to set those at realistic levels. I don’t set them so low that I easily beat them, nor too high so that I am always driving for more. And other times I just have to try. To have that leap of faith when no data or past experience shows that I will succeed. You just have to try. Here is a writing that lead me towards those thoughts.
“The one human being compares himself with others, the one generation compares itself with the other, and thus the heaped up pile of comparisons overwhelms a person. As the ingenuity and busyness increase, there come to be more and more in each generation who slavishly work a whole lifetime far down in the low underground regions of comparisons. Indeed, just as miners never see the light of day, so these unhappy people never come to see the light: those uplifting, simple thoughts, those first thoughts about how glorious it is to be a human being. And up there in the higher regions of comparison, smiling vanity plays its false game and deceives the happy ones so that they receive no impression from those lofty, simple thoughts, those first thoughts.”
