Preparation Pays

We don't often go through our day thinking about every moment we live, but the future we experience later depends on our preparation today. Here's an awesome quote by former Olympic champion sprinter, Michael Johnson:

"Success is found in much smaller portions than most people realize. A hundredth of a second here or sometimes a tenth there can determine the fastest man in the world. At times we live our lives on a paper-thin edge that barely separates greatness from mediocrity and success from failure.

Life is often compared to a marathon, but I think it is more like being a sprinter: long stretches of hard work punctuated by brief moments in which we are given the opportunity to perform at our best."

-- Michael Johnson, Slaying the Dragon
