What role does comparison plays in your professional and personal life? When is it a good or healthy thing and when does it erode your progress?

We'll admit it, we've both compared ourselves to others in all sorts of ways, both personally and professionally. It's almost impossible not to. The truth is, comparison can be an excellent tool for motivation when you use it productively. Or it can be a distraction and a thief of joy when you let it erode your confidence and distract from your goals.

This episode we talk through all that. And we also sip on a new rum drink to compare its delish merits with some of our other selections. Check it out.
