The BJJ Business Model

In business whenever you want to create a successful business, you create a business plan and model it after an already proven business. I think the same type of strategy can be applied to your own personal Jiu Jitsu. You can see what resources you already have, what strengths you already have, what you have available, what you don't, what you would like to accomplish and at what level, then seek out already existing BJJ players with similar strengths and weakness and read and watch what they have done. You can't just watch video, you must also read and listen to their interviews or possibly even read their books.

From there you rework your BJJ business plan, catering for all it's strengths, hedging the weaknesses, and figure out how to capitalize on strengths and keep pulling your model back to where you are strongest. That could mean figuring out what positions are best for you, and figuring out how to keep pulling (or luring) your opponent into those strongest areas, instead of trying to just react and flow with them. Calculate all their efforts to disrupt you into your game plan. This isn't just related to how you roll, but how you train, how often you train, where you train, who you train with, how often you split training with exercise or work, what cross training needs to be done, training composition (drilling/learning/rolling/positional training), etc.

Less thought you put into this, less control you have over your own progress.
