I'm living that right now. The former superstar who is now adequate at best. I didn't think I could bear it.

But it's not as bad as I thought it would be. I am still upright and alive.

Not that I'm advocating mediocrity, exactly. But being average isn't the worst thing in the world. Even being not quite average isn't the worst thing in the world. Hmmm... So maybe I am advocating embracing mediocrity.

I think I'm beginning to realize there is more to me than my performance.

So maybe not being the prodigy I used to be is helping me in some ways?

With me my problem is clearly burnout. I'm wondering if taking a college class or two might actually improve my work performance by giving my brain a good invigorating workout. Maybe I'll keep my current progress going by refusing to make an "A".
