66.Prepare and Act

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

…Benjamin Franklin

A Story: Three Fish
Three fish lived in a pond.
One was named “Plan ahead”, another was “Think fast” and the third was called “Wait and see”.
One day they heard a fisherman say he would be going to cast his net in their pond the next day, afternoon.
“Plan ahead” said,” I am swimming down the river tonight”.
“Think fast” said, “I am sure I will come up with a plan”.
“Wait and See” lazily said,” I just can’t think about it now, let’s decide tomorrow morning”.

The fisherman changes the plan and decides to do it in the morning.
When the fisherman cast his nets, “Plan ahead” was able to escape from his nets.
But “Think fast” and “Wait and see” were caught by the fisherman.
“Think fast” quickly rolled his belly up and pretended to be dead.
“Oh, this fish is no good!” said the fisherman and threw him safely back into the water.
However, “Wait and see” ended up in the fish market.

Similarly, there are 3 kinds of people:

  1. Those who make things happen
  2. Those who watch things happen
  3. Those who wonder what happened

Learning:
It is better to be prepared for an opportunity.
And not the other way, to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
