Recently I was reading an interview with Dara Torres. In the article she was asked which she preferred more. To train or to compete. I wasn't sure about this because I thought maybe she just loved swimming so much that she would say to train or both. But instead she said she preferred to compete.

Training she said, wears your body out but competing gives her a thrill.

I was then thinking, how does this apply to business?

If training for business is reading about business, I'd have to say I love training!

Do you prefer training or competing or both? What's your take on this?
