Here’s A Hint

The Dilemma Between Good and Evil

“Four out of ten Christians (40%) strongly agree that Satan “is not a living being but is a symbol of evil.” An additional two out of ten Christians (19%) say they “agree some-what” with that perspective.” (Barna Group)

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around

like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8 NIV)

The Devil Made Me Do It!

Seems pretty clear to me. Evil (the devil) is adept at matching opposing forces against each other competitively. In so doing, he/she has purposely distorted the outcome by inventing two competing words: “WINNING” and “LOSING.” Winning being a good thing and losing being bad. This competitive adeptness has resulted in chaos, mayhem and destruction, historically.

Human decency (Good), on the other hand removes the negative competitive aspect out of losing and winning altogether. In so doing, it tells us that even in losing, we can still achieve (win). Absurd? Yes, but so was the creation of the universe, if you stop and think about it deeply. The creative process always originates out of absurdity. And every competitive endeavor requires creativity.

This does require a radical change in thinking, however. That is, the ability to see winning as a process rather than an outcome. If the process is successful, in the end everyone wins, no matter what side you’re on, including if you are the perceived loser.

It’s Not About Finishing First; It’s About Finishing BEST.

To test this axiom, experientially, I have decided to attempt something very competitive that many will consider naively absurd. I do this first, to get your attention, and second, to prove that even while losing, I can still win. I thought about competing for something less absurd, like a sack race at the church picnic, but that would be self-defeating… and very embarrassing if I happened to lose.

In the competitive outcome sense of the word, what are the odds of winning the race I have chosen, Probably a zillion to one. Absurd? Remember, the creative process always originates out of absurdity.

This book, creatively, represents a documentation of that process, with tips along the way on how to win while losing. It will take some interesting twists and turns, with a victorious turn of events in the end. Enjoy the process, then go out and attempt something absurd yourself. Hey, what do you have to lose?
