Philadelphia: Community Cafe – Benefits to Healthy Competition


I want to thank all of those who came out to the Community Cafe Saturday, February 22, 2014. I certainly enjoyed the lively discussion regarding Competition.

As we discussed, competition need not be about determining a single winner. And it should not be about making others lose. Instead, competing involves responding positively to challenges and following example set by others. Competition is improvement. Individuals, families and communities who are competing have a drive to be better than they were.

Please take the time to complete the  Relationship Matrix  in order to identify those who are part of your network. In addition, identifying areas of opportunities to increase your network.
