Being Prepared

Planning is knowing what to do when you get there. Panic is getting there and not knowing what to do.
-Simon Sinek
A colleague pointed out that one typically attracts that which you are are prepared to handle.  Do you have clarity about what you are going to do when you reach the destination you have talked about for years?  Few of us would travel to Hawaii and step-off the plane without some sense of purpose.  Am I on vacation, transferring planes, coming to live, or on assignment?  Why talk about a destination without having context for what value a new platform will offer?  Write it down, assemble images, draw-up an acceptance speech, and have suntan lotion in the bag.  Be prepared for success or else you might appear like the keystone cops responding to a house fire.
