What are you bitching about today that is making life harder? Are your competitors taking business you feel is yours or otherwise being “unfair”? What, if anything, can you change about your competitors? Of course, not much, so why given them a second thought? Instead, your clients want, nay, need your love and attention, and there’s far more benefit to being present for them than there is your competitors. No one has the right to all the clients they want. Or even one particular client. But with commitment to your art and unwavering dedication to your clients, you’ll have the business you need.

No one got more business over the long term because they concentrated on what their competition was doing.
