The Value of Preparation

"We cannot control our luck - good or bad - but we can control our effort and preparation.

Luck smiles on us all from time to time. And when it does, the way to honor oyr good luck is to work hard and make the most of it."

James Clear

How important is it to be prepared in any part of life? The act of being prepared starts off with study and understanding. If you know you have an interview coming up, a work project or a test preparation is a critical piece of getting the job, doing well on the project, or passing the test.

If you think about it, life is a series of different tests and the tests are wide and varied. It takes different types of preparation to pass.

Here are a few types of preparation

  • Physical

  • Spiritual

  • Intellectual

  • Social

  • Academic

  • Emotional

  • Mental

  • Emergency

Each of these has a different approach to the type of preparation.

For example, the test of sickness or bad health requires physical, mental, and emotional preparation. One day you might think you are strong nothing's happened to me to be chronically sick and unable to do much for yourself. If you have prepared your mind to have a positive mindset you can overcome and pass the test.

The test of losing a loved one takes spiritual and emotional preparation. The preparation involved might be understanding who you are and where your place is in this world and the type of impact you want to have on it.

There is a saying, " When you are prepared you shall not fear."

Whenever you feel uncertainty or fear about anything that is the time to start preparing.

Here are some steps you can take to be more prepared.

  1. Talk - Talk to people who have more experience than you do their experience can help you learn how to prepare better

  2. Read - Read a lot. Learning from diverse backgrounds and subjects increases your knowledge and gives you different viewpoints.

  3. Study - Put in the hours and effort to understand something you are not familiar with and the payoff can be huge.

  4. Act - Don't wait around. Take action and make a plan the quicker you start something the less emotional and work
