Preparing as best as we can is a motto we might choose to live by in all areas of life. Possibly it is a way of being so embedded in our mindset we don’t even realise we are engaging in it on a daily basis.
Without getting into the question of whether our best is ‘good enough’ – according to whose criteria we could ask – a couple of general points are worth considering.
1) Preparing as best as we can gives us the reassurance of knowing we have done all we are capable of doing to bring about success in the task before us. Appreciating this is surely better than holding onto the thought we should have, and could have, done more.
2) Preparing as best as we can does not guarantee success but it is more probable when we are in top condition. If something is important to us why, in any case, wouldn’t we want to give ourselves the maximum chance of obtaining the desired result?
So, having read this ‘Preparing as best as we can’ post, let me ask you this question: Are you preparing as best as you can for all that you wish to achieve?
