I once asked Andrew Dice Clay’s son Max Silverstein in Los Angeles, “Is there any saying, any mantra of advice that your dad says to you all the time?” And Max replied, “My dad always says, ‘Max, keep your blinders on’, meaning, don’t compare yourself to others. Run your race the way horses run with blinders on.” I always remembered that note from Max, from his father. It’s good advice.
