3 Steps on becoming a Connor McGregor fan

Until Friday I had never heard of this guy but just by appearances he looked like a skinny little bad ass. You should also know that I am not a fan of UFC – I have nothing against it, I’m just not a fan – I don’t follow the fighters or the matches. (Ronda Rousey got my attention but again she didn’t hold my attention to become a fan of the game.) I became a fan of this guy by Saturday morning. It happened in 3 steps.

Step 1.
I saw this photograph on the cover of SI.


Step 2.
I read this quote in the story on SI and thought, “…hmmm, I like that. Something I need to remember when I’m under the gun. Interesting new thought, who is this guy????” Let me learn more.


Step 3.
I watched this video – he does cuss but then again, so do I. ┬áBut I liked what his coach says 4:24 in and that resonated with me.

The point of this post is to illustrate that before we go to another way of thinking or believing in most cases we ought to look for converging lines of evidence. Multiple streams of data to help us hash out reality. In this case I reached my point of view from 3 different angles but all of them from 1 source.

What do you think?
