After the Fact

I’m sitting in a hotel room on the other side of the world, and just turned on the TV to find Miami playing New Orleans in basketball.  Miami, of course, has the “big 3”, and they are expected to win.  But New Orleans has a new front office, new coach, and new team, and they are undefeated early in this season.

Because of the hype, I would have loved to see this live.

But I couldn’t.

And I found out who won several hours ago.

Watching it now has very little interest to me now that I know who won.

Unfortunately, that same feeling flows over into business as well.

I have a hard time watching the replays when I already know the outcome.

But businesses need those who can sit and watch after the fact.

You don’t get better without them.

So here’s to those who can watch the game after they know the outcome.

We dreamers admire you.

Businesses desperately need you.

    I’m a little surprised you didn’t take the correlation one step further: We know the ending to another story. We know who wins, and what the ultimate outcome is.

    Does this provide insight as to why so many (especially Christians) in life are apathetic about being interested in THIS Story? Are we just “watching the game” even though we know what the outcome is? Gosh, I hope not.

    Knowing the outcome should make us incredibly excited and eager to clue others in on what they’re missing.
