Positioning: The Power of Handicaps
The movie Minority Report had a quirky street hustler who told Tom Cruise, “In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.” So then who’s supreme in the land of the deaf, mute, or quadriplegic? That’s not important. Your first inquiry should be, “Who am I and what land am I in?” You can be the monarch of oration, but in the land of the hearing-impaired your kingship is worthless. But you can be blind in that same deaf country, where you are the ears to your nation’s eyes. Know thyself. And Choose your land wisely.
