We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success;
we often discover what we will do
by finding out what we will not do.”
- Samuel Smiles (1812 – 1904) Scottish author
Planning what to do before doing it may provide the opportunity
to have more time to do the things you want to do
by taking care of what you need to do first
in less time.
The problem in life isn’t in receiving answers,
the problem is in identifying your current questions
Remembering past victories and defeats in the present
may create a higher probability
of capitalizing on similar opportunities
and avoiding past mistakes in the future.
Chance favors the prepared mind
It may be better to know some strategies to use
than to believe and/or hope for a positive outcome,
especially if facing a formidable opponent.
