I was not a happy camper last night after “American Idol” aired.
It’s not that I dislike Kris Allen; he seems like a very sweet guy. But Adam Lambert has been the reason I re-engaged with the show after several years, so when Kris was given the crown, my shoes somehow ended up near the TV.
Following that, I spent about 20 minutes convincing one of our dogs that “it’s ok, Mommy’s not mad.”
I know, I know. And yes, I’m better now.
I know I’m not the only one to feel like this – but clearly many other people feel the opposite, which is why Kris won.
Two blog posts I recently read put my feelings in perspective for me.
The first is a killer post from Lauren Vargas about failing at the right time. If you haven’t yet, go there NOW. It’s a must-read.
Second, today Seth Godin posted a note on his blog inviting stories of remarkable businesses, services or organizations, that will be featured in the new edition of Purple Cow.
Adam Lambert is remarkable. He’s a purple cow. And he failed at the right time.
We should all be so lucky. Let’s make it so.

Adam Lambert has great voice and his showmanship is superb. for me, he is already a winner because of his superb performance.
Somehow I think Adam will be better off because he did not win…
Thank you for kind words about my post. I would love to be perfect and do things correctly the first time, but alas…I am human.
