People say competition is good. That is either a flat out lie or just dumb. Competition is for sissies. The goal is ultimately to dominate.
People make the mistake of getting too caught up in competing with the wrong players. They are too busy looking at the person at the desk beside them instead of the top three players in the industry. Look, when you are competing just to compete you are putting yourself in the same category as the other competitors. You are too focused on what others are doing and end up doing the same thing the same way.
