Neutralise Weakness

Tiger Woods is ranked 15 in sand saves on the PGA stats.

He is number one in all round ranking. 

Tiger wins his games on his extraordinary, hard wired, strength of his long game which, he practices, practices, and practices on.

He gives little attention to sand saves other than practicing to a level he calls ‘damage limitation’ (competent enough that it does not affect his goals).  Sand saves he recognised are a ‘hard wired’ weakness he is not going to hit #1 ranking on. 

However, he does not become #1 all round with sand saves. 

The point. A ‘weakness’ is only a weakness if it stops you achieving your goals.   

Do you really need to be supreme at everything (nobody is so no) or, just masterful at leveraging your strengths and neutralising your weaknesses?
