Revisiting Comparison

In an earlier blog I wrote about avoiding comparison as it rarely has a positive effect. But I read something recently that made me revisit that. This passage was in the weekly email update from James Clear, who each week shares 3 ideas, 2 quotes and 1 question:

To improve, compare little things.

-marketing strategies -exercise technique -writing tactics

To be miserable, compare big things.

-career path -marriage -net worth

Comparison is the thief of joy when applied broadly, but the teacher of skills when applied narrowly.
