Taking a Hint

Taking a queue from Cory I put the end of Rudyard's Kipling's poem "IF" up in my cube at work...

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,

I have gotten and lot of questions as to what the hell is that supposed mean...

Here is what it means to me.

The unforgiving minute is a minute of your life you can never live again. It is time you can never get back and to fill that minute with 60 seconds of some equivalent of living it to the fullest, some activity that is worth the price gets you accomplishment, fulfillment, inner peace what ever you desire.

What you get is determined by how you spend that minute so it is important to know what brings you that sense of fulfilment.

(The Crazy 88) Bizzio vSs

PS Tuesday night that minute brought the undefeated regular season of "Redballs are Better then Blue" to a close. Lets bring on the post season.

Goals for the post season:
Kick .500
Run up on balls
Stay a little more sober in the outfield.

I actually believe that it's possible to live the same moment over again, but can certainly appreciate your sentiments. :)
