No matter how much I want to, I cannot make myself sugarcoat this one fact: you will never be ahead of the curve if you simply follow and imitate others. True innovation is only possible when you are ahead of the pack.

There is more to a thing than its face.
The modern culture has become so biased to the presentation, that we often forget there’s more to a thing than just its face.
Apple could serve as a perfect example, but lets take that hottie near you as an example closer home. Why do they get all the good stuff? Why do people flock around them? Why is it that a sharply dressed co-worker gets all the appreciation? How, pray tell, can ones sense of style affect the way they code, speak, write, or sing?
We may have developed technologically in the past few decades, but it looks like we abandoned our reason somewhere along the way.
Oh, and another instance of how the society is going to the dogs—you presumed the “hottie” was a lady, right?
Comparing yourself with someone else, trying to be like another is the shortest and surest route to mediocrity.
Why try evaluating yourself against an inaccurate standard? If you seek to constantly get better, try evaluating your present against your past self. While this may not be the best solution (which is not comparing at all) it at least helps you find the right measuring stick.
