Keep Your Eyes on the Prize

The socially conditioned comparisons of our acquisitions and accomplishments may stimulate productivity, but just as often, as you well know, they produce anxiety and worry.

Arnold Siegel Health & Wellness

A score is kept for some of life’s prizes. Though there’s no Scoreboard in the sky, our acquisitions and accomplishments are driven, compared and ranked by an omnipresent display of cultural politics in the form of positive and negative social conditioning.
