Are you scared of failing? Scared your team might find out, or even, OMG Joel will find out?
I heard about such a story this week. A QB didn’t want to “do the right thing” and move trusses back in the schedule, because Joel might find out. So instead we impacted the BUILDER in a negative way. OH NO!
I am sorry, we have perhaps created a mini surge of “we are Drexel, we don’t screw up!”
HOW WRONG THAT IS!
WE ARE DREXEL WE WILL SCREW UP. I PROMISE YOU THAT. PROMISE THAT TO YOUR BUILDER TOO. WE WILL SCREW UP! BUT WHEN WE SCREW UP, WE WILL PASSIONATELY FIX IT TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY WITH A SENSE OF URGENCY AND COMPASSION UNHEARD OF IN THE INDUSTRY!
FALL 7, RISE 8 is one of my favorite sayings as a youth coach.
That simply means… it’s not how you fall, or if you fall, it’s HOW YOU GET UP! THE MORE YOU GET KNOCKED DOWN, THE MORE YOU GET UP!
MY DAD HAS SAID THIS OFTEN, “SHIT HAPPENS THAT IS WHY GOD MAKES BOOTS!”
YOUR CUSTOMERS WANT TO HEAR, “NO PROBLEMS, ONLY SOLUTIONS.”
LET’S OWN THIS. LET’S TELL EACH OTHER. I F**ED UP BAD. BAD. I AM SORRY, BUT I AM ON IT.
LET’S BE HUMBLE ENOUGH TO KNOW, WE ARE ALL FAILURES. WE ALL SUCK. BUT WE TRY HARDER THAN ANYONE!
FAIL. LEARN. GROW. IMPROVE.
CELEBRATE THE LOSSES THIS WEEK!
