Craig was on his seventh grade basketball team. His team was playing a cross-town rival, and the first half of the game had been hard-fought, with plenty of tension on both sides. When the second half began, Craig's team was down by two points. The opposing team fumbled the tip-off, and Craig found the ball pushed into his hands. He began dribbling like mad down the court, and as the crowd screamed, he executed a perfect lay-up -- right into the other team's basket! He had worked hard and found success -- but for the wrong team.
It's possible to work hard and hit the wrong target.
