How to Effectively Monitor Competitors to Improve Your Own Performance

How to Effectively Monitor Competitors to Improve Your Own Performance
Every space that dedicates itself to one’s livelihood—the workplace, educational institutes, etc.—ultimately operates on the apex of interpersonal comparisons. How well one person is doing is heavily related to how well their peers or coworkers are doing, and it is important to be aware of that when functioning within these spaces.

There are ways to track the progress of others and relate it to yourself, and while this should be done only occasionally and deliberately to minimize on excess stress, it is a vital approach if you want to excel in your education, career, or business.

Social Media Strength 

The age of digital media has resulted in individual expressionism never seen before through the use of social media. Social media allows for people all over the world to connect and communicate with one another by posting comments, sharing articles, uploading videos, and much more.

However, this has resulted in an interesting phenomenon wherein one’s social media presence is (seemingly) highly indicative of who one is as a person. Certain jobs have started asking for the social media information of applicants to better discern their virtual influence and thus workability, and many publishing and writing-based industries have even started prioritizing clients by gauging their social media following. It’s a way to assess how effectively the person will be able to promote their work.

With the use of sites like, your social media presence can be analyzed and critiqued for optimal success, so that you can revisit and strength your virtual image. You can also monitor the social media presence of your competitors to see what they’re doing that seems to work and where you can improve on their strategies.

Be Aware of Your Workspace

A great way to gauge your competitors’ success is simply through mere observation. A lot happens in the workspace—or schooling space if you are still a student—and staying vigilant is a sure-fire way to stay on top of it. Take note of how people interact with each other, how information gets around and how friendships develop, and make sure you involve yourself accordingly in order to both blend in and dominate the scene.

For instance, if a group of your coworkers go out to lunch with your boss every Friday, insert yourself into the narrative by going along with them. Make sure this is not an orchestrated event that excludes you for a specific reason before you make this move, but seldom will that be the case—still, it is vital to protect yourself from presumption and miscommunication.

Also, always be aware of what your boss may want or need and try to offer assistance as soon as you can in any way you can. This will exhibit your dedication and ability to take the initiative.

Be Kind and True to Yourself 

Ironic as it may sound, simply being yourself, as well as a good person, are some of the best things you can do to ͞get ahead͟ of the competition. Making genuine connections and sincerelywanting to do well at your occupation or studies will always benefit you in the long run, and sometimes it is more about being the dependable friend who can be counted on than cutting everybody else down behind the scenes.

No matter how cutthroat some people may be in trying to get ahead, often the best thing you can do is be the person in the room that everyone else likes to be around and can rely upon. Being a true person to yourself and those around you will always be a trait that serves you, no matter what environment you may find yourself in.

Final Considerations

Competition is inevitable in environments with a number of people all with similar goals and objectives. The best thing you can do for yourself in these circumstances is look out for yourself by being aware of your coworkers, peers, bosses, and audiences who are as important to your competitors as they are to you.
