Ep. 82: Tipping Points
Jul 20, 2020 Episode 82
Steve & Matt Kwan

This week, Steve and Matt discuss tipping points: the concept that, once you have sufficient leverage or momentum, your desired outcome can no longer be denied.

We've all experienced tipping points, whether it be on the mats or off.

In Jiu-Jitsu, tipping points occur when your opponent gains so much leverage that you cannot realistically fight off their attack anymore, and your only recourse is to change your tactics.

In real life, tipping points occur when an idea, product, or movement gains sufficient momentum that its growth becomes exponential.

Good strategies involve creating tipping points for yourself, and pivoting should your opponent create a tipping point against you.
