“I will prepare and someday, my chance will come.”

– Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States

It is early summer in Michigan and this past weekend, I noticed a large number of my neighbors working on their lawns and landscaping. Many were also preparing the soil and planting flowers in their gardens.

Their driveways were piled with soil, mulch, grass-seed, and lots of other preparatory resources, to help the flowers and greenery grow.


What preparatory activities can you engage in today, and all year long, to increase your professional and personal chances of success?
