The Grasshopper gave me a note a few weeks back. He said,

“Life doesn’t have an undo button.”

I have yet to flesh out a full Grasshopper Note on that piece of wisdom but the immediate thought was this. The closest we ever get to having an undo button is to apologize.

I wrote this piece back in August of 2001 and thought I would include it in this blog. Let me know if it makes any sense for you.


Almost everyone longs for The Opportunity but this chance doesn’t present itself to most.

The Opportunity is presented to only a few and most of them do not act on it.  

The small percentage of people who do act on The Opportunity have peace and contentment for the balance of their days.  

The unsettling news is that the people who never had The Opportunity presented to them, and the ones who did and passed it up, share something in common.

They either regret for the rest of their life that they never got The Opportunity, or they forever rue not acting on it.

Maybe you’re one of the fortunate ones who has The Opportunity right now.

What are you going to do with The Opportunity if you’re lucky enough to be one of the chosen?

It takes courage to act on The Opportunity.

Will it be peace and contentment or lifelong angst? It’s your decision.

What could The Opportunity be that eludes most, is presented to few, and is acted on by fewer?

The Opportunity to make it right.
