Dangerous curve

Most of us are slugs.

Dawdlers, drones, idlers, laggards, loafers, slouches.

Maybe you knew this all along, but the rest of us have been kidding ourselves, figuring we average folk were pulling our weight, doing okay, so to speak. Our self-esteem was tied to the bell curve, but the bell curve is no more. You can forget the bell curve. The bell curve is old thinking.

Researchers have discovered that in every field --- sports, entertainment, politics, science, and so on --- there are a few superstars who outperform everyone else.

If you're not a superstar, you're everyone else.

Sorry. Have a nice day.


  1. You are a superstar to me, Doug!

  2. Thanks pal. More likely superseded, I think.
