Michelangelo had his worst sculpture. Pavarotti had a performance in which he missed so many notes, he didn’t return to the stage for the second act. Ted Williams had a season where he didn’t come close to his typically above .300 batting average. Over the course of a career, even the greatest had sub-par performances. Why should we expect more, perfection even, from the rest of us mere mortals?
