Two Mintue Drill

Permanent Linkby wisconsin_cur on Fri Nov 19, 2010 3:01 am

In (American) football there is the two minute drill. The tactics you bring to bear when you have reached the two minute warning of the second half and are behind by one field goal or touchdown. Due to circumstances you play the game differently and are willing to take some chances to try to win in the end. You play in a way that you cannot afford to the previous 58 minutes.

ALOT of progress has been made over the last 7 years since I first heard the words "Peak Oil." First I researched, then I planned and, as Pops would say, I've worked the plan, but I am still behind where I want to be. Not too far behind, a touch down ties, a two point conversion is a win. I can push myself harder and take an extra chance or two beause I am fairly confident that come 24 months my ability to prepare will be effectively brought to a conclusion. There will still be a lot of work to do then but it will be a different kind of work. Opportunities that I have now will be lost.

I am going to be on my game 24/7. Wiht the kids and when at work, how I spend my money and how I save, how I act everyday and how i react to the extra-ordinary. i was playing to win the first 58 minutes but now I am approaching the remaining porblems with an unsustainable intensity. It is a tradeoff that I am willing to make because such intensity will not need to me maintained for much more than a couple of years. The clock is ticking and I'm first in ten on my own twenty-yard line.
