if you live in my house, a ‘draft’ references one of two things – football or a piece of art that’s halfway done.
both raise my blood pressure, but let’s go with the second example for this post.
the most common draft that i experience looks a little something like this:
however, they take many forms.
a policy that needs editing,
a run that wasn’t the best,
a presentation that contained stutters,
and a conversation that resulted in a mess.
drafts rear their ugly heads everywhere.
drafts also offer something else.
a chance to step outside the box,
the time to practice it once more,
the gift of reflection and revision
and the opportunity to make it better than the first time.
it can be very difficult to let your drafts show.
but hey, every once in a while, it might be worth the risk to get a little drafty.
