Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“Focus on quality over quantity.”
“The quality/quantity dichotomy can be a useful guideline in many instances, but it’s important to also be mindful of its limitations.
When it comes to movement for instance, more is better. I’m not referring to the number of repetitions (reps) of any one movement, but the number of times you move throughout a day.
Moreover, to get better at anything you need to perform a large number of quality-reps.
Both quality and quantity are important.
I like to make a distinction between a dichotomy and a dyad.”
“What is a dyad?”
“Both a dichotomy and a dyad are structures with two terms. The difference is, for the dichotomy the terms are mutually exclusive, whereas for the dyad they are not.
We might think of them as the difference between OR and XOR (eXclusive OR) in Logic.
A/B Dichotomy: OR – either A or B
A/B Dyad: XOR – A, or B, or both“
