Growing up, I was a very competitive athlete (as competitive as one can be growing up before Title IX.)  But as I grew older it wasn’t as important to me. I wanted to be good at what I did, even the best, but it was more about getting better at what I was doing and also the interaction with others and working together as a team.

As life has progressed, I have no desire to be better than the other person but rather to be a better person, a better me at whatever I do. I strive to learn something new every day, be a better me and live my life to the fullest!

What’s important to you?

    I enjoy doing things really well. Sometimes it looks like obsession, when I keep seeing more things that could be tweaked. But it doesn’t feel unbalanced to me, because in almost all cases I’m enjoying the process of creating, reviewing, discerning what could be different, and playing with various ideas. This does carry over into reviewing other people’s work, but usually I can remember not to be judgmental–we all have our reasons for doing things the way we do, and we all do things inefficiently, backwards, upside-down, at times. I see perfection as a process, not a goal. After all, if you ever reached perfection, what then?
