The Thang

Charlie Chaplin once said, “My pain may be the reason for somebody’s laugh, but my laugh must never be the reason for somebody’s pain”, and wise Charlie also said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted”.  YHC’s “North Georgia Boy” accent has been quite the fodder for laughter, mumblechatter, and overall levity throughout some beat downs.  So, YHC decided to embrace this, with a little inspiration from Rainman, and lead a “Twelb Up, Twelb Down” bootcamp…

In “Freed to Lead”, OBT and Dredd discuss Dredd’s “failure” his first time leading PT in the military. He spent all night preparing, exhausting over the details, and practicing each aspect thoroughly.  When the time came, Dredd fell completely and utterly flat (forgetting cadences, breathless, and poor form execution).  His teacher didn’t yell, scream, degrade, or lecture, but gave a simple yet poignant phrase…. “If the Museum of Failure had an exhibit you would be featured”.  The next day, he sent Dredd back to do it all over again but with a little less “failure” this time. 
Full disclosure, YHC felt like this during the Q efforts this morning as YHC proceeded to fumble some things.  However gentlemen, it takes 10,000 hours to truly master a skill.  Thus, as husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles, and comrades, we are called to find joy in the failures, seek those wiser, and commit to honest reflection and go back out again tomorrow a cadence better, a bit wiser, and with a little more confidence to lead those around us! Keep Accelerating!!
