Preparation Is Half The Battle
“To be prepared is half the victory.”
– Miguel de Cervantes
It may have been basketball coach Bobby Knight whom I heard it from, and it may have been part of a famous Vince Lombardi quote. It went something like this: “The will to win is important, yet the will to prepare is critical”.
Often in my work coaching CEO’s and business leaders I am frequently confronted by the storyline that “I don’t have enough time”.. And yet, we each get access to all the time that is available. Great performance is a result of great preparation. Any business, team, or individual that is maximizing their potential is mastering their schedule. It is more than showing up – it is showing up prepared.
