No one has less serenity than the person who does not know what is right or wrong.

Prepare the way

It is best to build your strength long before you must call upon it. It is best to deal with the small problems before they grow into big obstacles.

Do yourself a favor and prepare the way now for what you know will be here soon. Instead of anxiously rushing to catch up, calmly work your way ahead.

There’s no way to know exactly what life will bring. Yet your past experience has given you a very good idea of what is most likely to come in the future.

Do what you know will need to be done, well before it must be done. Give yourself the delightful gift of a future free of last-minute stress.

You’ll be much more effective when you can work on your own terms and at your own best pace. Work your way ahead, and give yourself many more options.

Prepare for what you know is coming, and you’ll be much better positioned to deal with what you don’t know is coming. Stop rushing to catch up and start moving solidly ahead.
