When is the best time to do something crazy?
You may call it a coincidence but I do not remember the last time the stars aligned so perfectly (to do something crazy that is). Many of you know that I am a big sports fan. My beloved Redskins have been on a hot streak. Lets see last Superbowl win was in 1991. Hey, that was when I was living in Guatemala. They have had only one playoff win since then. Us Redskin fans call it a victorious season if we just make the playoffs or at least beat the Cowboys once during the season. I'm a big UVa fan. Which naturally means I hate Va Tech, right. Well lets see. Our football team started its 3rd string QB by the time the season got under way. Now we normally struggle to win when we have the 1st stringer in. For our season finale against our biggest rivals (those hokie pokies) we started at QB our defensive corner back. Just to throw those hokies off guard. And it almost worked. We only lost by 3. That's a success by today's standards. Our basketball team.... we used to just try and make to the big dance but now we just want to make the NIT but we will settle for less. Why do I keep following these teams. I must love the pain. Back to the stars being aligned perfectly. Our beloved gov't has done everything possible to destroy the insurance industry especially the Medicare insurance industry. I'm sure the gov't has helped your industry whatever that may be or at least given you a sense of a little more security, right. Ha Ha. And lets see my absolutely favorite political party is now completely running the show and being lead by my favorite politician. Some that know me may say that we our running from those dang stars. But I assure you that this is nothing but coincidence (with a nudge). With great adversity comes great opportunity. It is obvious that my sports teams have a great opportunity at hand and I consider the same for myself.
So lets hear your take, when is the best time to do something crazy, or at least try something new?
