TO OVERCOME CHALLENGES, STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS – DEAN FURNESS

Dean Furness talks about how “comparing yourself with others” won’t help much towards finishing your challenges but rather achieving them by calculating your “average” and increasing it little by little.

Once I saw the title about this Ted Talk, I got intrigued. I thought that he was going to state the obvious when he started, but instead it was all about finding yourself and trying to become better at who you are and what you do, rather than putting yourself in the comparison bubble where you are expected to achieve something greater than the person who seems to be two steps ahead of you. My takeaway message from the Ted Talk was this: “Try finding yourself everyday by increasing your average and not by comparing yourself to others, because YOU DO YOU and one day, you’ll be two more steps ahead of the guy that you thought was two steps ahead of you”
