    Back in the 80s I watched an interview with an old violin master. He said to be good at something it must fill a need for you.

    One thing I never did was compare myself to others. Most of the time peer feedback lets you know were you are at. I stood on my accomplishments. You know you are doing good when others seek you out.

    For me it was a lot like the old martial arts paradigm, the only real enemy is yourself.
