Your “First Score” is what happened the first time; the “Second Score” is how you handle it, how you respond when your First Score is unsatisfactory. You can’t alter your First Score BUT you can choose your response to it and that response is your Second Score. Bear in mind that the fallout from the First Score may include criticism, some of it constructive, some of it stinging, perhaps not all of it on point. When you are to process all that feedback, sort the wheat from the chaff and try again, smarter and wiser, that is your Second Score.

“A second chance doesn’t mean anything if you didn’t learn from your first.” – Anurag Prakash Ray
“A second chance doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. In many ways, it is the more difficult thing. Because a second chance means that you have to try harder. You must rise to the challenge without the blind optimism of ignorance.” – Ling Ma
As always, I share what I most want and need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
