I've thought about going back to college in the past. I mean I see people my age and I think, 'They're not even half as smart as I am, but they make way more money than I do.'

Taking courses and reading books takes up a lot of my time, so I stopped doing all that perfectionism crap and decided to execute in small steps.

Then I realized, "They aren't even in the same league as me so why am I comparing myself to them if it makes me feel like shit?"

If you judge a fish by it's ability to climb a tree it will think it's stupid. Fish do not compare themselves to monkeys.
