Thought 4 the Week (II): Not Comparing

One of the compelling points about creating a Vision of the Possible is not to compare.  In business, we benchmark and adopt best practices as required--no doubt.    It is ultimately up to us--as many of the leading lights of our time have proven time and time again.   If that was the case we will not have the iphone, the ipad or for that matter the internet.

These thoughts courtesy of +Jonathan Huie  is a telling reminder:

Do not compare, do not measure.
No other way is like yours.
All other ways deceive and tempt you.
You must fulfill the way that is in you.
- Carl Jung

Comparisons are odious.
- Old English Saying

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others.
He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
- The Buddha
