The Rat Race
We buy clothes from 'designer' brands and stuff our closets with them before we try to build an outfit that will make everyone else jealous. Then we design our suites, trying to make them look perfect. We visit other people's suites, secretly hoping that their outfit won't be as attention-grabbing as our own, or that their suite will be plain. If it is, then we're happy, but if their outfit or suite is better than our own, then we envy them. We may do this without realizing it, but I'm convinced that we all do it to some extent.
If you're not convinced, I'd like to ask you if you've ever thought about what other people might think about a new outfit or suite design, or even rejected an option simply because you know other people wouldn't like it? Have you ever gone to someone else's suite and found that their outfit is nicer than your own and wished you had that kind of talent? My point exactly.
What's the most extreme thing you've ever done to get ahead in the rat race?
