If we aren’t improving daily, aren’t we falling behind?
If we aren’t improving, might we be actually sliding backward or downhill?
And if we are, isn’t that gap (we v. them) widening?

Like overtaking cars in traffic – we don’t need to pass them if they’re already going fast enough.
YES, if they are going faster then we’ll strive to catch up, recreating that conflict but then we’ll both be moving faster, stronger, perhaps more clearly – about what we are doing and why we’re doing what we’re doing.

Gee, I feel better already, PW, Calgary, AB
