I don't compare well to who I was yesterday
'Compare yourself to who you were yesterday." This is one of Jordan Peterson's commandments. It is in fact Rule Four of his 12 Rules of Life, and they are, indeed, modern day commandments.
As much as the liberals will tell you that Peterson is some kind of Alt Right loonie, there is a deep moral, pretty much religious, core to his rules for life.
So I decided that I would compare myself to who I was yesterday, and that each day, through tiny incremental improvements, I would transform myself. Yes, they would be tiny incremental improvements, but when they all added up I would be a different person in a year's time.
