Although I really enjoy that kind of enhancement, I am not that guy who likes self-help content. However, I came across a really good content based on an analysis of a bunch of high-performance Judo athletes.

“What has this research taught us? I believe that there is a very simple lesson to learned from this research. Judo is a game of specialization. You have to use the skills that work best for you. You have to stick to what works and practice your skills until they become automatic responses.”

Omg I've never heard about Fordlandia here in Brazil, such a great comparison. Other good one is told by my dad when a new Philips executive decided to shut down the Walita brand in the 80s because his perception as an international executive and without our context, Philips brand was stronger than Walita. A couple of months after they had to put back Walita brand again in the market. Context.
