Who or what are you competing against? If you win, where does it leave you?
I dont necessarily mean the game you played two days ago or the guy you just beat in a head-to-head matchup at work on at the gym or the business war you just finished. What I mean is, the thing that is driving you to keep going — how good do you really need to be to beat that or them? Will it put you in an impressive position should you come out on top? Or will you just be the biggest and best in a small-ass, who-cares pond? Is that the level of peer you want to walk with?
If you don’t like the prospects of what wining the current race gets you, change the race.
