Where there is joy there is creation. Where there is no joy there is no creation: know the nature of joy.

Fully prepared

The race is won long before the race is run. The race is won in the preparation.

An accomplished actor earns the role long before the audition. Preparation is what makes the crucial difference.

Those who pass the test with flying colors are those who learn and study and rehearse in the time leading up to the test. Impressive excellence and committed preparation go hand in hand.

When life asks for your highest effort, you must give that effort in the moment. To do that, be fully prepared.

You cannot allow preparation to become a substitute for actual doing. But neither can you allow yourself to avoid preparation.

Be fully prepared ahead of time. And be fully able when the moment calls you to make a difference.
