Which is more important?

If we are to be examples of the Buddha and the way, which is more important, our progress, or the example we give to others?

johng,
from where does this question come from?
there's no buddha, no way, no progress, no others if you alienate yourself from who you are.
if there is no alienation or separateness, your question resolves itself.
everyday is a good day.
pls let it resonate before you analyze it.
