I Have Failed (Thank Goodness)

BY: Joe Crisara

What Is Failure?

What is failure? A feeling inside that goes into my soul. It makes my heart hurt and it drains all of my energy.  A bad feeling fraught with dire consequences

When I fail I feel this sense of dread that runs through my entire body.

I feel like diving headfirst like Pete Rose into bed, pulling the covers over my head and turning off the world while I try to figure it out.  The intensity gets stronger and stronger the more I try to tune it out and try to escape it.  Eventually I come to grips that failure is always my fault.

Man On a Mission

Gerry was a technician on a mission. He was going to try to break the company record for doing the most calls (14) in one day. This day seemed like the’perfect storm’ where everything was in place to set the record. The boss told him at 7 a.m. that they were swamped with tune ups and no cooling calls and it was 95 degrees and a relative humidity of 80% today.
