Two B's or an A and a C  Which is Better?

Many years ago I began asking my evening adult college students
 which was better, two B's or an A and a C. 
Almost all said 2 B's.

Then I rephrased the question.
You need a serious operation; which do you want,
one with good bedside manner and good operating procedures or
one with a C in bedside manner and superior operating procedures.
I'll take the A and the infamous Dr. House every time.

If the IRS has questions, I want the best tax accountant I can find.
Auditing ability means little to me as does their looks, personality, or golf game ...

A young lady heard these examples and at the break thanked me
as she had been told  that her poor math ability made her very average
 and being very good at English was not good enough.
She also said page two of the
Quick Notes Philosophy
at the front of the workbook I had written
made her feel much better about herself.
 Sacrificing self confidence to make someone a little better
 at anything is one of the biggest mistake of our generation.
