Straight and Curly Ep 57: The comparison game

Comparison is the thief of joy; we all know this. Yet, we don’t seem to be able to stop measuring ourselves and our achievements up against those of others.

  • Can comparisons ever lead to something good?
  • Can we cure ourselves of comparison-itis?
  • Should we aim to crush the competition? Or collaborate with them?

In this week’s show Carly and I share our experiences with comparison-itis, and how we manage it.
