why my life is occasionally like rocky 4

May 21st, 2008 by Rick Marshall · 2 Comments ·

I would like to make you all aware that I recently had an epiphany. Basically, the jingo-tastic Sylvester Stallone opus Rocky IV is actually a metaphor for my life.

Let me explain:

Sometimes I look at a project, shrug my shoulders and think, “I must break you.”

Other times, I find myself wanting to scream the name of a project from the top of a mountain, shaking my fist at the heavens and swearing on the grave of someone close to me that I will overcome the odds and complete this project.

And then there are times when I think a project will be simple, so I don’t even bother putting on pants when I start to work on it. I just dance around in my red, white and blue underwear, taunting the project and singing James Brown songs.

When that happens, things usually don’t end well.
