get on their level

I prefer to train on my own.

But I recognise the value of training with other people as well.

It’s situation dependent.

Certain things are better done alone. With uninterrupted focus.

But for other things, especially skill-based work, having someone to work with can be immensely helpful.

Especially someone who’s just a little bit better than you.

Whilst still beneficial, it can be difficult to relate to someone vastly above your standard. But if they’re just that little bit ahead, not only does it motivate you, but you can see the difference between where you are now and where you want to be.

What makes them able to do those things that you can’t? What are they doing that you’re not? What do they do better?

Pay close attention. Find what it takes to get on their level.
