Kelley School: Teuncetrasking

This is what we call a teuncetrasking: *teunce* (06:43) *trask* (06:44) Flawless victory!

Meaning: Classical notions of combat made the shorter man the "underdog", but even so, it comes down to who is the more agile and skilled. Also, the game of glory often attributes the victory to a political leader, but lasting glory belongs properly to the individual to which history gives a name. (07:16 - 07:44) I think equally of Scott Adams's "Dilbert Principle" and 05:36 - 06:15 of this video when contemplating this principle.

This is part of the David E. Kelley School of Advising series.
