    “… with both their strong hand and their stronger hand.”

    Wow this kind of took me by surprise. I like the way it sounds and how it leaves out weakness in the description of someone no matter what their current strength may be.

    Years ago, during police officer survival training, we got away from referring to the non-dominant hand as the “weak hand”. We didn’t want to send officers out onto the street believing one of their arms/hands was weak, in the event that they injured their dominant hand during a life and death incident.

    How you perceive your strength to be will be manifested in your performance. Better to believe that both hands are strong, but one is a little stronger than to believe your “good” hand is strong and your other hand is “weak”.
