Scarred for Life

Scarred for life

Connor, our almost-two-year-old little dude spent most of Sunday night in the emergency room.

He was playing with Ella, our 3.5 year old, when he tumbled down two stairs on our deck and hit his head on the plastic sand table, putting two healthy-sized gashes on his perfect little face, one above his left eye, one below on his cheek.

As soon as it happened, my wife and I realized that our perfect little boy would need stitches and would likely be scarred for life.

That stinks.

But, if you have kids, you know how quickly they bounce back (way before us parents do). In fact, he was running around the house, stitches and all, that same night.

No one (or business) is perfect.

As strange as it sounds, this underscores why I wanted to share an inside look at some of things we’ll be doing at Forge3 in the weeks and months ahead.

Even though Forge3 has doubled in size this year, we’re far from perfect.

Perfect isn’t the goal. Progress is. Doing the right thing is.

So, why do so many businesses (and businesspeople) pretend to be perfect?

Guess what. We’re human. All of us. We all have scars.

Some scars we can see, others we only feel.
