Rob was feeling a little left out that I have never chosen to highlight a quote that he found, so today, he is the star of the week with our quote of the week!
“Luck is when opportunity meets with preparation.”
He knew I would love this one, as I am all about being prepared and planning and stuff like that. I truly truly believe that so many things in life are better when we are prepared.
We are less anxious.
We are less stressed.
We are more available to take on new challenges.
We are able to take advantage of opportunities. When opportunity knocks, we are ready to answer the door and jump at the chance to do something great!
I know planners are criticized for being boring, and that they can’t ever be spontaneous. There certainly is a fine line. Not everything HAS to be planned. However, I have found that by planning “enough” things in my life, I now have room for the spontaneous, unexpected and unplanned things. Some things I just don’t have to worry about as my plans are in place, which allows me the freedom to use my brain power to think about other things.
And that freedom, is worth so much to me. I am a tried and true planner.
