We don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training. – Archilocus
This is why we train and prepare.
Our ability to succeed is not based on superpowers granted at birth. Our ability to succeed is tied to our preparation and training. We develop behaviors and habits that help us when faced with critical situations. We develop the muscle and mental memory, and resort to our training without thought.
Whether we face armed conflict, or the change to a healthier lifestyle, or our next client conversation, we can’t expect to be ready unless we have trained and prepared.
