Mais pourquoi the run on sentence? some kind of already-won competition? *giggle* the tactic of believing that victory is in the past as spur to future work/play. cool.

Perhaps a related extreme case: Have you run across John Boyd's approach to innovation? He was the chief architect for the F15 and F16 fighter jets and developed techniques for acting and reflection in demanding environments.

Brief Wikipedia intro:

Interesting story.

Excerpt: "...the key to victory is to be able to create situations wherein one can make appropriate decisions more quickly than one's opponent."

( congrats on phd excitement )
