There are things we are all great at – there are things we are all bad at.
There are people on the mat who are enthusiastic advocates for what we do – there are people on the mat who are (oft times unknowingly) chipping away at the culture we are trying to establish.
There are parts of our game that we have the most confidence in – there are parts of our games that we have the least confidence in.
For everything that sits far on the right of the bell-curve – there exists it’s counterpart on the far left side of the bell-curve. For every 'greatest strength; we have a 'greatest weakness' - etc.
A great way of making our whole game/life/situation better is to shift the entire bell-curve to the right. For example, by working on the weakest part of our game and improving it – we will soon find that it is no longer the weakest part – then we repeat the process for our ‘new’ weakest part, and so on. By doing this, we shift the entire bell-curve to right. Eventually, what was perhaps once our greatest strength, eventually becomes the weakest part of our game – and we have a whole new set of strengths. This, I call, shifting the Bell-curve.
