”You should enter the field of battle with your bow set to a higher draw weight.” Tsukahara Bokuden
When I step into the dojo, I’m ready to go. Sure, there may be a few jokes (some of them good even) and laughter, there is a mission each day...and I make sure that I’m prepared.
Prepping for a fight or a tournament, you want to make sure your training sets you up to be as successful as possible. Again, you’ve got a mission...be make sure you’re ready!
The fact of the matter is that most of us don’t fight, or train in a dojo. However, I bet you that the most successful people in every field are those that are most prepared. Successful students have great study habits and put the work in BEFORE the test. Great teachers plan and put together the lesson BEFORE class starts. Those in business know that the work you do today is really to set up a successful tomorrow.
Look ahead. What’s coming at you in the next week or so? What can you do now so that you enter that experience as ready as possible?
