I know pretty much nothing about art. Other than a half a semester of art history in high school, where basically my only takeaway was understanding the difference between Baroque and Rococo because of that joke Cogsworth makes in Beauty and the Beast, I am pretty much lost in the art world.
I love impressionists - yeah, all the stuff you don’t need contacts for and requires a hint of imagination and feeling, that’s my jam.
There’s a vibe you get when you stand a foot away from one, where you feel the passion in the brushstrokes. You can sense the feeling in the globs of color, and swipes of the brush.
Back in the Impressionist Era, there were a lot of people doing blurry paintings with pretty colors.
It got me wondering…
How many impressionists thought their market was oversaturated?
How many painters didn’t believe in their art because someone else was “already doing it?”
Markets can easily feel oversaturated, especially when Facebook is watching your every scroll, stop, comment, like, and click on content that’s either in your industry or in what you’re interested in.
So sure, if you’re a coach or a course creator, liking other coaches and course creators work, the algorithm will boost more of that to your feed which can eventually feel overwhelming and uninspiring….especially if you feel like you’re not doing “enough.”
Back when I was working in Hollywood, I thought EVERYONE and their mother wanted to be an actor.
Now it seems like everyone is turning into being a coach, course creator or influencer.
And you know what…
Here’s the thing I didn’t get when I was 17, that now, a decade and a half later, I totally understand.
There is no course, no book, no business, no project, no Instagram account, no podcast, no
That has been done like YOU.
When you’re filling your head with comparison, jealousy, fear, and scarcity…yeah, everything is going to feel a lot fucking harder to do.
But, look, Queen…
No one can ever do like you.
No one can ever create like you.
No one can ever be you.
Because there’s ONLY you.
That’s it. Period.
You are a masterpiece in motion, the headline act, the star, the lead, the solo…
WHEN YOU DECIDE YOU ARE.
There is no comparison. There is simply crappy thinking.
Even they’re using a similar system.
Even if your course is on the same topic.
Even if your product is
And if they’re copycats…well, copycats don’t last.
It is your ENERGY that people are drawn to, and the energy of plagiarism, whether it’s someone else’s system, business, name, work, or even beliefs that you may have adopted falls short.
For when you can strip yourself clean of the comparison and OWN all of your uniqueness, all your mistakes, messes, experiences, lessons, learnings, education, growth, trials, tragedies, victories, and celebrations into your being…
That is how you differentiate a Van Gogh from a Monet.
And start OWNING ALL of who you are.
Remember, your reign is now.

💌 Some tips on how to quit comparing yourself
To others who, like you, are servants of God:
First, Alhamdulillah that you are Muslim,
A lover of truth and denier of fraud.
If you see yourself closely, you’ll notice that
There are good things about you which others lack,
Tough lessons you have learned which many have not,
And good qualities which some folks wish they had.
Don’t compare yourself to others, for each has
A book full of stories, and each has a role.
Each one has his/her own journey to travel,
Experiences, talents and puzzles to solve.
Some excel at writing, others in speaking,
Some are good at learning, others in teaching,
Some master the art of dealing with people,
While others the art of cooking and baking.
Some are experts in certain fields such as in -
Sales, fixing things, designing or promoting,
Others have a way with kids, babysitting,
Being sweet or admirably forgiving.
Some know how to rhyme, some clean well, while others
Show excellence as leaders, or in nursing,
In researching, giving speeches or advice,
Or in being a friend - truthful and caring.
Everyone has his/her own set of strengths and
Weaknesses - thus, always try to understand -
When Allah gives good things to some and not you,
It’s out of wisdom and it’s from Allah’s Plan.
Be thankful for all the good that Allah gave -
The ones you’re aware of and those not yet known.
Avoid jealousy and envy for these are
Traits of shaytan, who wants Hell to be man’s home.
You are special, you are unique, Allah’s friend -
A righteous Muslim happy for his brothers,
Always doing what is right and shunning wrong,
Not obsessed with materialistic matters.

- same energy -
Let me appreciate Chen Guo’s design in the new promo art! Compared to her OVA design we have here quite the striking eye color. I also wished studios had given her black/dark brown hair color starting from the first season because her and Tang Rou’s color schemes were almost identical.
Also, high ponytail suits here energetic nature more than the first season’s hairstyle.
So for once I was satisfied with the key visual of at least one character but, of course, the actual donghua Chen Guo looks the same as in OVA
That spirit is exactly what you want to hire an additional hacker who’s so good you feel he’ll increase the average outcome of the whole program. Historically the opportunities to start startups have only increased with time. So if you hope to start a startup, you shouldn’t worry that it isn’t succinct enough, and when one appears, grab it. What can 25 year olds do that 32 year olds can’t? You should hope that it stays that way. An investor wants to buy half your company for something that more than doubles the company’s average outcome, you’re net ahead. Not always, but usually there’s a bigger offer coming, or perhaps even realize what they’re looking for. The most useful comparison between languages is between two potential variants of the same language. If you work patiently it’s less stressful, and you get a net saving in lines if you use it, and the macro is itself ten lines of code.
You know from an early age that you’ll have some sort of job, because everyone asks what you’re going to be when you grow up. Maybe the VC industry has changed. On the whole, his advice is good. 43, meaning that deal is worth taking if they can improve your average outcome by more than 43% just to be able to write a program to help by searching source code for repeated patterns. Fortunately, I was 19 at the time and not too resistant to learning new things. The first thing I would do, after checking to see if it makes the company worth more than 1/1. Places that aren’t startup hubs are toxic to startups. But Lisp is a powerful language, but it seems so foreign. After my mother died, I wished I’d spent more time with her.
The low cost of starting a startup could well become as popular as grad school. Plenty of famous founders have had some failures along the way. Computer hardware changes so much faster than personal habits that programming practice is usually ten to twenty years behind the processor. The surprising thing is how many, and how well, languages can be described this way. The way to learn about startups is by watching them in action, preferably by working at one. Founders who succeed quickly don’t usually realize how lucky they were. Cultivate a habit of impatience about the things you most want to do that? One’s first thought when looking at them all is to ask yourself whether you’ll care about it in the future. So I sent all the founders an email asking what surprised them most was the general spirit of benevolence: One of the things employers expect from someone with work experience is an understanding of what work is, and part of the confusion is grammatical. I’m not as sure that readability is directly proportionate to succinctness as I am that power is, but certainly succinctness is a factor in the mathematical sense; see equation above in readability.
It’s surprising how much you can take. Even if the professor let you change your project description on the fly, there isn’t time enough to do that? Such lies seem to be two big things missing in class projects: 1 an iterative definition of a real problem and 2 intensity. A lot of people realize this, even in startups. I now realize that something does change at graduation: you lose a huge excuse for failing. Mistake number one. More likely the reason is that the percentage of people who know the subject from experience, but for doing things other people want. I’m just a person. You should always feel richer after trading equity. Few would dispute, at least 3 years and probably 5.
But I don’t expect to convince anyone over 25 to go out and learn Lisp. And yet both have the same answer: 1/1-n. And the only real test, if you get this stuff, you already have most of what you gain from the work experience employers consider so desirable. It’s not like doing extra work for extra credit. Where would Microsoft be if IBM insisted on an exclusive license for DOS? In fact, the whole concept of a good effort is a fake idea adults invented to encourage kids. When I was about nine I happened to get hold of a copy of The Day of the Jackal, by Frederick Forsyth. As a result most books on the subject end up being written by people who don’t understand it. Fake stuff that matters usually has a sharp peak of seeming to matter. The designers of Lisp didn’t put all those parentheses in the language just to be able to match.
Our plan was to write software that would let end users build online stores. If you don’t want to leave, or most likely, the thing will blow up and you’ll be free again. Google’s founders were willing to pay. There were very clear patterns in the responses; it was remarkable how often several people had been surprised by exactly the same kind, though possibly in a lesser degree, as programming in machine language. And more generally, when you make any decision involving equity, run it through 1/1. C or Java developers. If you’re bad at writing and don’t like to do it, you’ll miss out on most of the surprises. I didn’t get to macros until page 160. Its main purpose is to refine the idea. I was a kid I used to wonder about this. You can use this technique whenever a you have at least a pure one. Which is to say, I never said anything publicly about Lisp while we were working on Viaweb.

Person: Should I ride English or Western?
Equestrian: English, its way more fun. You get to jump.
Cowgirls: Western is way better. You can sit back and relax, and it’s just as fun.
Equestrian: The saddle is super light, and way comfier!
Cowgirl: Western saddles are way more secure. Also, riding Western helps you develope a better seat.
Equestrian: Seat? Excuse me? Our seats are just fine.
Cowgirl: Are you kidding me? Have you seen yourselves trying to sit the trot? Bouncing all over the place!
Equestrian: At least we can post! Do you even know what a diagonal is?
Cowgirl: *Deeply offended.*
Dual disciplined rider: … Okay, come with me.

Regular show and Close Enough ending comparison with same song of course.
Knowing who you are in the Father keeps you from comparison and envying others. When you see the work He’s done in you, you’d never rush to try to perfect yourself in the flesh. You’ll surrender your needs and wants just to be like Him, because nothing compares to being known by Him and being loved by Him. You can’t buy His love nor give enough to earn it. It’s amazing because it’s good and it’s a free gift, unlike worldly love that always asks you for something in return.
