You gotta fight, for your right, to sma-a-a-rty!

Your world really is not that competitive. It simply is not.

There is a statistic that says something like if you have a room over your head, clothes to wear at the moment and two square meals for today, then you are richer than 75% of the world. If you are reading this, you are one of them. You do not have to the need to be this competitive.

You work hard to stay ahead of the rest, cover your tracks, "do what you gotta do", hide your cards, suck-up and does that vault you over the so-called competition? Rhetorical question. No It does not. You end with the same job at the next platform as Mr. Numskull.

Is the world really short of jobs? No, it just never needed that many engineers or mba's. There are only so many lofty positions but there are plenty of positions for which the demand will never die out. You will never look at them so the world seems short.

Does zipping in traffic, overtaking from the blind-side, running traffic signals, going the wrong way and being a speed demon really enhance the quality of your life? You save a measly five minutes with your risky antics that may have actually claimed someone's life by the time you read this. The five minutes you saved are not going to add on. You do not wake up five minutes earlier the next day.

Do not legitimatize it. It won't work unless you want to prove for real what a misanthrope's view is of the human condition.
