It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one, than to have an opportunity and not be prepared - Whitney Young Jnr.
Whitney Young Jnr turns out to be a reasonably famous American civil rights activist.
His was the December quote in my 2004 calendar - the one I've been tracking through each month this year (and every year since 2004).
To recap: this calendar became a prescient source of inspiration during 2004 as we put aside our risk aversion and moved the Purdsters from N.Z. to the U.K.
As you'll appreciate the quote capped off our momentous 2004 well. It chimes well with my boy scout past: be prepared!
How about you? Are you prepared for that next opportunity (the word of the month)? Why not? (If you thought about it for a second and realised you actually weren't even thinking about the next opportunity).
It's always around the bend- get ready!!
Love and peace - Your protecting friend.
