YOU CAN BE A WINNER IF YOU PLAN AHEAD
You gain the advantage in any situation through one medium: time
You can do things before they need to be done. You can position yourself ahead of time in the best place.
Think ahead of any approaching action. Make a plan and you will always have the advantage.
Let your advance worrying become advance thinking and planning. The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.
In life, as in chess, forethought wins.
