If you stay ready, you don’t ever have to get ready.
What are the things that you do daily to keep your saw sharp? Abraham Lincoln once said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
The point is, if we spend our 1440 minutes a day cutting with a dull axe it is far less effective than one that is sharp. A great deal of people who get “lucky” is actually a realization of hard and smart work meeting opportunity.
Simply: the harder and smarter you work the luckier you get.
