Have you ever been to a library without having any special book in mind to read? Of course I’ve been to a library unprepared. 

Funny enough, when you get to the books stand or shelve you’ll see different enticing books with great titles,topics and contents smiling and looking at you and shouting,”pick and read me“. Confusion starts here and you won’t actually know the perfect one to read. That’s definitely a time waster because you might have spent about 30minutes still unable to decide the book or books to pick. 30 minutes of your limited time is gone without any achievement. If perhaps, you made a decision, you might pick at least 3 books out of 10 that you liked. After reading like 10 pages of one, you jump to another looking for satisfaction. This goes on and on and you’ll find out you didn’t finish any of those books picked. Why? You didn’t prepare and decide and that led to time wastage and unsatisfactory. 

Also, a professional football team will never play a match without preparing. There’s probability that they won’t win but at least the preparation will boost their confidence.

This goes with life. For you to get something here, you have to be prepared. You have to be prepared there before coming here. You can’t be here and tell me you’ll start preparation. No! That will lead to frustration and frustration can lead to failure. Failure can also lead to suicide. We all know suicide is Death!
However, I have never seen any successful person in the history of the world who ever completely prepared. Maybe there is but I haven’t seen nor heard. To me, nobody ever did that and neither will you. You can prepare for the next 10 years and you’ll still not feel ready. This means that the best time to start is NOW!

But a big problem with a lot of people is that they do either one of two things when starting something great in life.

Firstly, they don’t take the time to properly prepare and just rush to start….which is a great mistake.

Secondly, they actually take so much time preparing to prepare that they never ever get started…..which is another great mistake.
Hint: don’t do either.

Instead,research first and then be impulsive.

Make enough preparations and get started but don’t prepare too much that You will never get started“. 

          O.Timmy Paul.

The only way you will keep going is by ensuring you’re preparing, growing and developing.

Don’t stay somewhere for too long without any necessary contribution to your growth. 
Prepare well and you’ll keep soaring high.

you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.

The time to prepare is NOW!

The time to start is NOW!

Stay blessed in Christ!

  1. I so love this article! It draws a balance between failure to prepare and too much preparation that keeps an individual from taking a step at all.
