I am not a sports person, per se, but I always seem to explain my difficult work day by comparing it to a baseball pitcher. And, since baseball season is almost here, I thought I'd share it with you.
A pitcher warms up in the bullpen. In other words, he doesn't just sit in the dugout until it's time for him to pitch; he needs to warm up his arm first. On days that my schedule is particularly difficult, my need to stay in the bullpen lengthens.
At some point—though—you've got to go out on the field and throw the first pitch. The game can't be won from the dugout.
