Lots of people and it seems , very successful people have given their slant on being prepared.
Well, here is mine:
Being prepared days before an event – IT FEELS GREAT!!!
I could add bells and ribbons and balloons. It feels so good.
The event that found me prepared days before was the Annual Mission Sale at Ooty. A small local event , attended by locals only ..since they don’t advertise. We had a lot of books from our library to sell .
I had sorted out the books over a week, Left to my basic ‘things-will-happen’ instincts, I would have packed them the night before. But, my maid was going on leave. And then, who would lug the boxes up the stairs?
So, I was driven to pack the boxes a week before the date! This for a person who packs the night before travel.
Preparation really feels great. And may the feeling last long enough to to get the worm to turn and turn and keep moving !
P.S: Yes, we sold a lot of books!
