When you look around at what other business owners are doing it’s easy to fall into the trap of comparing your business to theirs. But don’t do it.
Comparison is a circle of doom and it’s toxic. When you look outside of yourself at what others are doing it distracts you from what you want to accomplish.

This is a simple but interesting topic. I am always tempted to check my competitor’s activities, which sometimes give me a huge destruction as you pointed out But should I stop completely ignoring it? Maybe not. I think we sometimes learn good practice from competitors. My question is how much we should ignore the competitive activities.
Great point, Toshi. I agree, you can learn things from competitors. The key point I was trying to make is that comparison can leave a person feeling negative about her business which is energy that can better be spent focussing on making her own business succeed. Thank you for sharing.
