An Enemy Who Causes Me To Better Myself
Overheard downtown as I was coming back from the Ferry Building around 7 a.m.: A man venting to someone on the phone about someone else with whom he had some sort of competitive relationship, something about, "...and he can do my job really well," or something to that effect. I just wanted to point out that there is a kind of power in being honest and vulnerable enough to admit you are freaked out by the excellence of those with whom you vie. He should take some heart.
