Shot 99: DO OVER

By: Tom Newhouse in Leadership, 1 month ago

A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.”  Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —­­

EVER WANT A “DO OVER”?  Oh, yeah!  I guess we all want another try once in a while.  Good as I came to be as a single shot .22, there were times when I begged for a “do over.”  But really, what good is another chance, unless you learn from the first time.

Feedback is the breakfast of champions.  You question, “Feedback?  I thought we were talking about do overs.”  Well, it’s kind of the same thing:  You get information about what you did originally and then you adjust, and try again.  Without the information, without the desire to do better, without the reflection, without the plan for improvement, forget it, because a “do over” won’t matter.  Hey, make any “do overs” you get, work.  Be a champ
