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!
