Counting Your Chickens Before They Hatch
We count a baby's toes when he or she is born ~ and fingers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
We count when we're playing sports and cheer leading for our favorite team (2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate?).
We count our money after the bank teller hands it to us to make sure we're not shorted (10, 20, 30, 40, 50...).
We also like to "count our chickens."
More than that, we oftentimes do it "before they hatch." (Many of us?)
The problem is some chickens don't hatch.
Some purchases get cancelled.
Some deals don't close.
Some ideas are rejected.
Some plans go kaput. (Boom. Smoke puff.)
Did you need to be reminded?
