Paul McCartney Quote - Everybody Else Is Busy Doing Better than Me

There's a lot of me in that. No matter how famous, or no matter how accomplished or how many awards you get, you're always still thinking there's somebody out there who's better than you. I'm often reading a magazine and hearing about someone's new record or seeing something and I think, "Oh, boy, that's gonna be better than me." And it's a very common thing.

-- Paul McCartney talking to NPR's Robert Siegel (aired October 15, 2013) about his inspiration behind the song "Alligator" from his album released yesterday called New.  The lyrics to the song include the line "Everybody else is busy doing better than me."

I heard that segment on NPR, but what the quote you selected leaves out is that McCartney feels quite competitive. People might be doing better, but it only serves to drive him to achieve at a higher level. Even at the age of 71, he's still working to do his best.
