love the concept of second chances, the op-portunity to try again and do something even better. For women we can recreate our im-age through makeup, hair styles & colors and clothes. Fashion magazines do it all the time with before and after shots. Guys can do it too and the afters objectively, looks much better every time. In golf there is the concept of a mulligan, a do over shot off the tee. Wouldn’t life be great if we all could carry a do over card with us at all times and whip it out when we screw up?
