Big Ben Roethlisberger

If Barack Obama was an NFL quarterback, which quarterback do you think he would be?  My guess is Ben Roethlisberger.  When Ben was playing high school football, “the man” tried to hold him down.  The coach preferred to start his son in the position of quarterback so Ben was stuck as a wide receiver until his senior year.  Hmmm….Ben had to endure favoritism given to someone a person in power just felt more comfortable with.  I’m sure Obama can relate to that.  Ben is also known for playing outside the pocket and shaking things up a little.  This sounds like a “change platform” to me.  And then the obvious, Ben won big in only his second professional season.  He followed that up by winning the Super Bowl again just a few short years later.  Ben’s football accomplishments (and the speed at which he has achieved them) baffle my mind in exactly the same way that Obama’s political success does.

Sometimes getting something faster can make it seem even better.  I know that is the case with my lunch order.  The faster it arrives, the better I think it tastes.  Keep this in mind when unexpected gifting opportunities arise.  These unexpected gifts are often more meaningful to the recipient than the standard occasions like a birthday (those can start to appear more like an obligation).  Flowers or a gift to celebrate a big promotion will seem even more extraordinary if you can get it over to the recipient as soon as possible (within 24 hours).  Whenever you think you want to send a card or gift for something, get online and do it before the thought slips your mind.  Timing is everything so don’t miss a window to gain some extra points.  You’re the quarterback; I’m just here to protect you.
