hard dumb? Feeling jealous when others claim the top prize. Because they deserve their prize, really, they do. They kicked sales butt, as did everyone you know.
It doesn’t help that I’m a bit (ha!) of a perfectionist and anything less that #1 is a huge disappointment leading to hours of self-flaggelation and resulting in self-induced depression.
Told you it was dumb.
Well, once the depression wears off, I’m still there. Hopefully more determined, with a better attitude, and a plan to claim that prize the coming year. Because I don’t want to fight the green-eyed monster again.
