Nugget of Knowledge

Run your own race.

"Don't be preoccupied with what the competition may be doing. Just like a marathon, some people start fast and fade or start slowly and pick up  the pace later. Keep focused on what you're doing, and you won't have to worry about over- or underestimating your peers. Besides, great teammates root for their co-workers, knowing that there's plenty of opportunity to go around if people pull together to grow the business." 
-Marty Fukuda, entrepreneur

This is a good reminder for me. In high school and college sports, I excelled in team sports, but struggled more individually. I needed the comparison to others for motivation. As I have "matured", I often remind myself  that we are all at different points in our race. -Amy
