Staying in the Game

London-Gymnastics-5

After weeks of preparation for a 7 minute recital, I observed a team called up for the consolation prize. As the others were called out to pick more prestigious awards, it was evident why.

Sometimes you’re in the wrong game, sometimes the season for your game is yet to come and sometimes you’re not prepared.

At other times, your efforts lacked the cutting edge level of creativity needed to put you over. Again, maybe there were too many cooks in the kitchen to create that new experience the market desperately needed and wanted.

Of course the ‘consolation’ team should simply chalk up this performance as a learning point, a benchmark for the future.

But then, what team would you rather be?
