TRIPLE III TIME: The Value of “RE-DO’s”

Do Better

When you hear the term “RE-DO” …what do you think about? Do you think about:

  • RE-DOing your living room to make it modern?
  • RE-DO a test in class because you did poorly?
  • RE-DO your website because it needs to add features?
  • RE-DO your sales approach at work to make it more customer friendly?

Well today this TRIPLE III TIME message will focus on the: “You never get the opportunity to make a good first impression!” …side of The Value of RE-DO’s.

Some of my greatest personal and professional learning moments came when I messed up…and was not able to arrange a RE-DO.  Whether it was not turning in a special report on time…or not following up with a business colleague in a timely fashion regarding future work…the inability to be allowed a RE-DO…provided a true life lesson.

Many times, I have shared thoughts with others about the value in realizing failure…no matter the occasion.  Likewise, I have witnessed the involvement of a “third-party” in a RE-DO situation and how the true learning moment is somehow diminished when someone “runs interference” and mistakes made are minimized.  Allowing the difficult learning to happen is just real life.

Babe Ruth didn’t get a RE-DO when he struck out.  He just practiced more and got better.  Neil Armstrong didn’t get a RE-DO when he didn’t pass all his NASA training the first time.  He just studied harder and started new in his quest to qualify as an astronaut and walk the moon!

What do YOU think about RE-DO’s?
