Getting worse before you get better.

Often when a professional golfer changes his or her golf swing they get worse before they get better. I heard it described chiastically this way today:

When they are struggling they are -

"Great to play against because they are terrible"

but eventually they become

"Terrible to play against because they are great."
The same applies to teaching card games, scrabble, or chess. You win at the beginning, but eventually your student becomes the master.

(we played with chiasmus ealier with one about Icarus)
