The Will to Prepare

Maybe if I researched plate spinning and practiced it for thousands of hours, I wouldn't suck at it.

I don’t know about you, but every success I’ve had in my life has come as a result of preparation. This quote has always resonated with me accordingly:

“It’s not the will to win that matters — everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”
–Paul “Bear” Bryant

The times I haven’t prepared correctly have mostly led to disasters, both personally and professionally. I used to think I could “wing it.” But as I get older, I realize that winging it really means you aren’t trying.

If you don’t care enough to prepare, then you don’t care enough to succeed.
