Compare is to estimate, measure, or note the similarity or dissimilarity between. Too many times we evaluate our successes and failures by comparing ourselves to others. What others have going on has nothing to do with us. Rather than compare, just do you. It's your life and you are the only one that can live it. Be careful of the advice you receive because it will be based on what someone else would do, but what about what you want to do? You have to take some time and come up with a plan but first, what do you want to do? You may want to build a pyramid in your backyard, do you. Who cares what others think about it, it doesn't matter it's your life. Do you have trouble making decisions, or setting goals? Do you know how to set a goal? SMART is the easiest way to set a goal. Make it specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-able. If you use this formula it makes goal setting a snap. You don't have to keep up with the Jones's, or the Smith's. Set your own trail a fire, doing you!
