Last night was captain night at my daughters cheer leading practice. The Lord saw fit to bless me with two daughters and to prove he has a sense of humor they both are on the school cheerleading team. Each cheerleader votes for two varsity and two jv captains. Neither of my girls received the honor of being captain. Both were very disappointed when they got home. What made my wife and I proud as parents was that they both were first to congratulate the girls who did receive the honor. My youngest is turning 11 next month and already understands the importance of the team. When asked what she thought about the whole captain thing her response was, “They will be good captains and I will do my best to make sure I help them be good captains.”
In business part of what we need to do is help our partners be the best and most successful they can be.
Both of my girls are smart enough to know how to wrap dad around their finger too. So I did go rent them movies and buy ice cream. I am grateful that captain night is once a year. After a trip to the local Dairy Haus I am in a personal recession. How much? It’s only ice cream.
