Success is a funny thing. There are all sorts of way to define success. In baseball, the most successful hitter of all-time is Ty Cobb. His lifetime batting average was .366. In fact, any player who hits over .300 for the season is considered not just a success, but a star. But put that same .300 average into a typical classroom setting and the student is not just failing, but is not even close to success. It’s all perspective. What lens do we look through to determine (dare I say judge) that someone, or something, is successful?
