Compare Yourself to Who You Were Yesterday, Not to Who Someone Else is Today
Two comments I received in different posts in 200WaD made me googling where this passage came from and led to this blog. I found out originally this came from "12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos" by Jordan B. Peterson.
Embarrassingly I did not meet with any of his outputs yet but he seems very popular in the world. Yes, I think I have heard about this kind of person from one of my best friend in the context of political correctness and hottest tweets.
According to some of articles and blogs about him, he is very capable of wording and logical discussion, and courageous, realistic, but humble.
I will read his books and watch some of his youtube movies. I might be able to get more hints about not comparing myself with others, but who you were yesterday.
One of the benefits to "continue" to write something for yourself is that you can observe your thoughts objectively. Our brain is working and thinking of various things. Every day there is a noise on your ideas and opinions based on your health condition, and what you do on that day. However, if you keep pushing snapshots of what you are thinking, it is helpful to observe what is the mainstream of your thoughts. At least comparing who I was yesterday, I am realizing this benefits by writing experience.
