When hosting Christmas lunch at your place, you don’t just start preparing when your guests arrive.

You plan your menu in advance.

You do your shopping.

If trying something different, you have a practice run beforehand so that you don’t mess up the big day.

You prepare in advance, so that when everyone turns up, you are ready.

Similarly with your goals.

They don’t just happen.

You plan.

You prepare.

You take action.

You practice so that you can get better.

And then, when the day comes, hopefully you are found ready.
