 The reason is to try and be the absolute best you can be at that particular discipline, to put yourself up against the very best in the world and see what you're made of. To be quite honest, other than eating, drinking, urinating, defecating, and sleeping, there is nothing you need to do.  There is nothing for which there is a "good reason" (you know, staying alive).  But we tend not to judge elements of our lives by simply whether or not it keeps us alive. For what "good...
