If you take a look at society, you would think that being incompetent was the order of the day. We forgive people for what they are incapable of doing and chide others if they show they are too competent.
The only you will truly survive is to Be Competent which is one of the precepts in the book, The Way to Happiness. The test of true competence is the end result and you can get great results by doing three things: Looking, Learning and most of all Practice! Most of us are not given great talent but by doing the above, you can work your way up to it.
