It’s ok to lose some competitions. Every battle is not worth fighting for. I’ve seen a recent spate of successful people pass away well before their time, not from accidents, but from illnesses like cancer. Almost all were fierce competitors who led stressful lives.

It’s better to preserve health than lose one’s life over trivial pursuits of perfection. Self-care is paramount. American-style Karoshi’ is an epidemic.

Sometimes, losing really means living.
