Delray Beach- A Week of Preparation
As I write this, it looks like Erika has become a bit more disorganized and will not favor us with a hurricane. But, she did give those of us in South Florida a wake up call that not only are we still in hurricane season but it’s just getting started.
It made me think about preparation and why, as easy as getting ready could be, some of us just don’t take the time to prepare...whether it’s for work, a game, or our everyday lives.
“Before anything else,preparation is the key to success.” Alexander Graham Bell
Those who were prepared had only to address last minute items this week. No panic or rushing to several markets and discount stores to purchase one of the last gallon bottles of water. (Yes, I was out buying fresh produce just in case and heard several people complaining that some stores were already out of water.)
However those who chose to put it off are no doubt breathing a sigh of relief… for now.
Much of the stress we feel is self induced. The old quote of luck is preparation meeting opportunity makes a lot of sense.
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Benjamin Franklin
“The will to succeed is important, but what’s more important is the will to prepare.” Bobby Knight
Hope you’re prepared for a wonderful weekend!
