If you fail to prepare, you're preparing to fail.

“If you fail to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.”

“If you fail to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.”

If you fail to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.


Living each day, in all aspects of life, is in a sense like preparing for tomorrow. Everything you do today will somehow either make or break the day you have tomorrow. And tomorrow, well that is nothing more than a test to see just how well you prepared. Have a test? How well did…

We all remember sitting in our history classes when we were young, probably in a circle inside the classroom for a group discussion, and talking about what the American Dream really was. Nobody volunteered to speak, of course, because that would be geekish, and nobody wants to be a geek. But looking back on it all now, have we as individuals lost sight of it all?

Each and every one of us has a different Dream. It deals with careers, spouses, houses, cars, pets, kids, toys, money,…
