Idolatry of achievement

Paul Martin calls achievement the new idol:
At some point in our lives, we compare ourselves to each other and find that we don’t measure up. This is especially present in what I call the Tiger Woods syndrome. My wife and I used to golf occasionally. She would usually wind up frustrated at some point because she couldn’t strike the ball like Tiger. It is unreasonable, but it IS what we compare ourselves to.
