Every now and then I’ll enter a competition online. And it usually only happens when I really want the prize on offer. I’ll enter competitions where there is a standardised form. But I prefer those where I can differentiate myself and stand out.

For example, when a Facebook or Instagram page’s competition asks you to tag a friend. Most people will just tag their friends or tag them and leave a comment saying “omg hope we win.”

But I use the opportunity to write something that catches the eye. Which usually ends up being a rhyme or something particularly witty

And I’ve won 4 competitions this way, totalling almost R3000 in stuff.

It’s a sneaky metaphor for living life. If you do exactly what everyone else is doing you have the same chance of them of succeeding. But if you differentiate yourself, you up that chance exponentially 🙂
