Life is a Permanent Beta Test

Jon Foreman, the lead singer of my favorite band Switchfoot once said, “[…] unlimited undos. I wish I had that in life.” The great thing is: We do!

In life, we get as many chances as we need to find answers and ask questions. We have our whole lives to figures things out and reach our dreams.

No matter how many times we slip up and fall short of our dreams, we get to go back to the drawing board. 99.9 percent of people (yeah, I’m just guessing) get it wrong the first time. Remember, you’re a beta test. You’re testing yourself. You’re testing your plan. You’re testing your programming.

It’s just like me on a tennis court. No matter how many times I play and how many times I win or lose, I’m still learning. I’m still perfecting my game and my attitude.

I could list off tons of areas of my life when I am constantly testing myself and upgrading my skills and performance level. One of the things I’m doing a beta test on this year is my creative writing. (See my new Life-Debt Series.)

What are some areas of your life you’re like to speed up the beta testing?
