Quote of the month: Bill Simmons

Given the financial crisis in the US, things are bad fight now for a lot of people, which reminded me of a Bill Simmons quote where he described a point in his life prior to his blogger-before-we-called-them-that rise to sports writing stardom:

“You know things are bad when you’re setting your alarm clock for noon every day, only you still have to hit the snooze button a few times before rolling out of bed.”

Bill Simmons, January 2008

Everybody has ups and downs and I’ve found that nothing resets my expectations or priorities in life quite like a down.  If you happen to be in one now, rest assured that it won’t last forever.  It worked out for the “setting your alarm clock for noon every day, only you still have to hit the snooze button a few times before rolling out of bed” guy it can work out for you too.
