How to Compete Productively
In a Highly Competitive Society Like Ours ,
Are There Times When You Shouldn’t Be Competitive?
Most people may think that competitiveness is okay, especially in things like the Olympics. May the best runner win! But what about competitiveness in the home, among siblings, in beauty contests or on a job where teamwork is called for?
Are there times when competitiveness is counter-productive and cooperation may produce a better result? Are there instances when competitiveness is not appropriate or even destructive?
Mixed Messages About Competitiveness
How do we, as Atheists, handle the mixed messages we get in our society about this subject--when religion tells us to sacrifice for god and a place in heaven--but our economic system, free enterprise, cries out for competitiveness and self-aggrandizement? Where does the secular community stand on this dilemma?
Come and discuss your competitive quandaries in the casual, friendly NYC Atheists support group. LIVING WITH ATHEISM, run by the always-empathetic psychotherapist Linda Blaikie, L.C.S.W. We eat, talk and commiserate, but at the end, Ms. Blaikie’s wise words sum up what we’ve learned.
