Simply the Best

We all like to think we are the best at something, well, to be better than you at something would make a person trying Stupid, would it not?

No - because we all need a purpose in life - something to strive for - or what would be the point of it all?

ST
so true, without a target to aim for is not the right way. I have hit my target and now can sit back and enjoy more years of hard work than I care to remember

Do we though??...I think I'm OK at a few things. But I don't think I'm the best..or anywhere near it..at anything. Don't personally know anybody else who does either. As for "stupid"..I always try to be very careful how I use that word.

Re: Simply the Best

I wish I was really good at something but I am not, I am the archetypal "jack of all trades, master of none".

I have an interest in many things, actually too many things, but even things I do know a bit more about than your average being (typically electrics, electronics, power generation) I am still nowhere near an expert on any of them.

Re: Simply the Best

I don't think I excel at anything...best I can say is I'll have a go and give it a good try.

Re: Simply the Best

It's impossible to ever say you're the best at something without competing with others to decide, but what then if "the best" hadn't bothered to compete?
