. . . is worth two in the bush.
I was so sorry to see the Colts lose last night. I know that Peyton’s interception will be the most talked-about mistake, but there were plenty of others too so, unfortunately, they just didn’t have one of their best games in the Super Bowl.
But I would guess this will bring back talk about the Colts management decision to not try to win their last two regular season games to “save” their players for their run to the Super Bowl.
I can’t help but think that it would make it a little easier to deal with the loss they suffered yesterday if they at least had the record for a perfect regular season to show for this season.
I knew a man once who was going back to school to get his degree after being in the workforce many years. The first thing he did was aim for an associates degree. His reasoning being that after two years he would have “locked in” that degree, no matter what happened while he was working at getting the four-year degree. He executed his plan exactly like that — he earned his two-year degree (and it did take a few additional classes that wouldn’t have been necessary if he were just working toward the four-year one) and then went on to get his four-year degree. Some might say that the two-year degree was made “useless” when he got the four-year one. But I would say that he took the achieveable while working toward the desirable.
Be careful not to let the “bird in a hand” fly away while you’ve got your eye on catching the two birds you think are in a near-by bush!
