As some of you may know, I attended the Malcolm Gladwell Live talk last night at the Lowry. It was a great event and I left it a richer intellectual being. But we'll get to that in just a bit. My beautiful evening went off to a great start.
Serendipity. An exploration that took us from the courageous Galileo and the enthusiastic, if not incompetent, C. Columbus thru the world of pharmaceutics, past the state of education today and, like any good story teller, back to Galileo. It was a very exciting 80 minutes. Exciting because we didn't really know where he was going to take us (something that proved very relevant to the theme) but also because when he opened doors and unveiled statistics, he also proved the value of the whole journey. The value that lies in braving the unknown. It's safe to say that I got more food for thought than I can shake a stick at and that's in BJJ Grappling, coaching methodology and life as a whole. Simon Biltcliffe can go get knotted!
