My buddy Don Crowther made an awesome video, about something inspirational that took place on a college softball field in Portland, Oregon recently.
But I have a bone to pick with him about his moral punchline. Here’s the video (you might want to get your kids to watch it with you) and you might need a box of tissues (it’s very touching.)
So watch the video, then read my thoughts (which I’ll post below the video.) Then keep scrolling to vote in my poll, and post your own feedback.
So… obviously this is a powerful video, and Don did a tremendous job. But I think he missed the mark on his moral conclusion. I don’t think it is all about how you feel at the end of the day. I think that lots of people get tripped up by relying too much on “how they feel.” And that a lot of people do really bad things because “it makes them feel good.” Am I right here?
OTOH, I don’t think I’ve got a pithy replacement ending for Don. I was thinking of something like:
“Winning is much more than the final score. It’s all about leaving the world a better place at the end of the day.”
What do you think? Scroll down to vote in my poll. Am I full of it? Or is Don? Then please post a comment to explain your vote, or give us your own pithy moral conclusion.
