Making The Grade

I don't know all the ins and outs of who did what in the Black Belt Poker Grading, but I do think it's an interesting example of how the journey is more important than the destination. You can see two extremes on the Grading page, irrespective of who actually became what belt. There are people who tried to make the most of the process day by day and people who seem totally focussed on the end result and whether they "passed or failed".

Needless to say the first group will have developed as poker players, and maybe even as people, far more than the second. And, paradoxically, I'm sure that the people who did pay most attention to what they were doing day by day, hour by hour, hand by hand actually had the best chance of achieving the desired result in the end. With this being the topic du jour on the forums, that's the angle I wanted to highlight anyway.
