In times of uncertainty, it’s important that we make sure the competitive fire stays hot. If there’s not an opponent right before you make that opponent yourself. You always win if you’re striving to be better. If you don’t have a clear direction to point your competitiveness, create one. There are a lot of directions this can go and still be beneficial for you. The weight room, the treadmill, a friendly competition with a friend. Just don’t let the fire die down because there’s nothing to “burn” in your immediate future. It should stay hot and prepared to be unleashed on whatever you need it for when the opportunity arises. It’s not something you want to try to get burning again when you need it.
