Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. -William Faulkner
Who are you really competing against? Now that you got that down, go out and win!
The Virtue of Temperance
Control. Discipline. Restraint. Call it what you will. But if you don’t have it, then life will be much harder. Rather than automating your life for success, your habits will be weak and detrimental. Temper your desires of excess. There is joy in moderation.
