On the Level

I was reminded again today of a problem I've had much of my life, that of using the wrong standard by which to judge my own abilities at something. I look at the abilities of others, decide my abilities are not good enough, and get down on myself. The problem is that I look at others who are too far above me at the whatever something I'm working on instead of others who are an appropriate level above me. I may not have expressed that well, but it's my shortcoming to work on, not yours.

  1. Most definitely one of my shortcomings as well. And maybe it will make you feel better to know that you are one of the people whom I always find myself falling short of.
