There are two mottos to follow with this kind of thing:

	1) It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself,
		you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you
		do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will
		win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor
		yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

	2) Chase the dream, not the competition.

I think there's room on this list for both types of folks.
