In the penalty box…

Yesterday I was watching TV and came across a hockey game. I don’t get a chance to watch a lot of hockey, but my favorite part of the sport is the way penalties are handled. When an infraction occurs a player is sent to a special box and his team plays short handed for 2 minutes or 4 or even 5 at times depending on the penalty.
The strategy of both teams radically change. The team with one less player tries desperately to disrupt the other team and kill off the penalty. The team with the advantage waits for an opening and attacks.
Why am I talking about hockey I can hear you ask. It is a pretty good metaphor for life and business. When you are down, sometimes the best you can do is hold your ground and circle the wagons. When you have the advantage, you can be more aggressive and go for the score.

Hope you have enjoyed reading this, comments welcomed.
