Comparing yourself to others takes all the joy out of growth. Tune into this episode of the Empowering Educators Podcast and listen as Gretchen shares her experience of comparing herself to others and the lessons she learned along the way. Listen until the end as Gretchen shares 4 tips to help you out of the comparison trap.


  • It’s unfair to look at your colleagues and compare yourself.

  • I was taking the joy out of the growth because I was too busy looking at the wrong people and comparing myself. 

  • The only data point that makes sense is comparing yourself to you in the same situation.
