Are You Ready?

Tuesday November 1, 2016 #842

“To every man there comes in his lifetime that special moment when he is figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered a chance to do a very special thing, unique to him and fitted to his talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds him unprepared or unqualified for the work which would be his finest hour.”

~Sir Winston Churchill


It is important that you clearly know who or what is important to you, and what drives & energizes you.  Reflecting on these things or people, focus on doing those things that prepare you to be ready for when the chances come to be there for those people and to make progress on issues that are important to you.  What are those things that prepare you for those moments?  For the most cherished people in your life, spend time with them.  Seek to know them deeply by being curious and asking questions.  For the most important issues, it is the same:  Be curious.  Learn as much as you can.  Understand what it takes to make progress.  And be ready for the chance to do something to lead a positive change for those people or issues.  Never stop learning about what is important to you.

How ready are you?
