Do you remember "do-over!" Shouted in the backyard or on the playground, this phrase meant, "the game we just played, and its results, are erased and we play that game again. New game. New results. Recently on NPR, I heard about a new book, in which a 48 year old man returns to kindergarten, summer camp, his prom and a number of other childhood experiences and gets a Do-Over!
This weekend, I get a do-over of my triathlon. Last month I was to run my first, but an early morning injury landed me in the ER instead of the race course. I'm excited. I get a do-over.
Last month, at Fishhook, I demonstrated some bone-head team leadership. I wish I could get a do-over. Through the grace of my team, we're moving on, but I really wish I could go back, erase that game, erase the results and start afresh. It was not my best moment. Ever experienced a moment in business or ministry...or life at home where you got a "Do-Over?"
