There are times when hurrying and being fast are the right things to do, save time, and produce some great results.

I read an article recently in the Wall Street Journal that reflected on the tactics of the Oklahoma football team's offensive line. The Sooners intentionally train to play at a fast pace and their players aren't even supposed to high-five each other. The film review has demonstrated that such activity slows the pace. Their motto is: no time to celebrate, don't play to the crowd, and don't get mad-just play!

  • $2 trillion is about what American investors have lost in their retirement savings since mid-2007.

  • $2.05 trillion and $1.17 trillion are the projected federal costs of health coverage ideas floated by Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama, respectively (the Lewin Group analysts; )

Whoa!...apparently a gentleman in Brazil reportedly had police finally catch up with him as he owes the equivalent of nearly two million dollars in unpaid traffic fines. The police stopped the 36 year old man and discovered he had been ticketed nearly 1,000 times, the year he bought his current car. He accumulated fines for speeding and running red lights.
