A Memorable Quote

I am often reminded of a quote from one of my teachers in acupuncture school. He was an incredible practitioner in his area of medicine.

He said,

Don’t try to be as good as me. You can’t be as good as me. Only I can be as good as me. Try to be as good as you. Then you might be better than me.

It’s something that’s always stuck with me. It’s true of writing as well and I remind myself to try and be as good as I can be, not to try and be as good as the people I admire.
