The power in being consistently bad

Let’s play a game.

Which is better: occasionally great, or consistently bad?

  • Consistently bad: this person can be trained to be consistently good.
  • Consistently good: this person can be trained to be consistently great.
  • Consistent great: this person can lead the training of others.
  • Inconsistent at any level: this person is too unpredictable to be trained.

The power in being “consistently bad” isn’t in the “bad”, but in the “consistent”.

With few exceptions, reliably showing up at any level enables us to become great, with time.
