In golf a great golfer like Tiger Woods may win a 3-day Tournament by only one stroke over the next competitor. However that one stroke may give Tiger a payday of 1 million dollars while the next closest competitor, who was only one stroke behind, may get only $250,000. Out of a par of 216 strokes in a 3-day event, the 2nd place golfer was only 1 stroke worse than Tiger and that difference was $750,000. That’s a tremendous amount of money. And when you really think about the fact that the difference in that big payday might just have been a blade of grass, or a pine needle that caused the ball to veer just a little off course on one shot–on one hole–on one day–of a three-day tournament, then, you realize the difference is a very fine line indeed.
Often the difference in life is a measly 10 percent. If you’re five feet ten inches tall, or about 70 inches, you’re a fairly typical height. Reduce that by 10 percent and you end up 63 inches, or five foot three. Add 10 percent and you become a giant at six-foot-four inches. Comparable changes can take place when you add 10 percent to your diligence, perseverance or enthusiasm levels. The result produces a gigantic effort or a mediocre one. The point is, ten percent just isn’t much. It’s hardly enough to tell the difference between a 40 foot sloop and a 36 foot sailboat, until you get the sails up in a stiff wind.
