Family First

Chris Bowler jots down some fantastic advice in his latest post (emphasis mine).

But my purpose here is to simply encourage those with families. Please do not spend your time endlessly comparing your accomplishments or progress with those who have no family. Your setting yourself up for guilt at best, and resenting your family at worst.

I do not have any kids yet but I think this advice applies to everyone, especially those working on the web. I've been slowly learning that I cannot continue to compare myself to other people in my industry - it's counterproductive.
