Why is it so important to be prepared and live in the here and know?
And this is even true for an army….
“No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy’s main strength” Quote from the greatest Army strategist: Graf Moltke.
If we are not prepared for new situations then we can fail. For instance an examination, a speech over an unknown subject for an auditorium… And then comes the situation and we want to apply all the things that we had prepared for and we fail.
If we listen to discussions then we realize that very often the people do not listen but speak… and the results are lousy…
We act according the situation and not as we want… And this is true for every area of our life.
This means that we are good prepared, and when we in the situation, then we forget every plan, and do what is the best to get our outcome. The situation is bigger then our preparation, because there are so many components that we can’t calculate.
And this is the meaning of the quote “No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy’s main strength” from the genie Graf Moltke.
Without preparation we can’t get the outcome. It is too time consuming to speak about details in a subject, where the people have too less knowledge. This means, every body should be prepared or we can’t speak in details…. It looks like common sense and common sense is not common practice. Live and enjoy your life now… Otherwise we will not become happy and successful.
