Conditions, advantages, situations, resources, skills, timing and knowledge are all important factors in what you do, but not nearly as important as your choice to act on them. The conditions may be perfect or they may be awful as hell, in either case and all of the ones in-between, you can get good stuff done. Think about it as a sailing ship. A sailing ship can reach its destination whether that destination is upwind or downwind. The main difference is that the upwind journey providers sailors with more experience. No matter how this day started or how its been going thus far, you can still make progress. Whether good things are falling into your lap or your situation has fallen into disarray, you can move forward. Remember what matters is your choice to get it done and make it through. The wind will shift, the sky will clear and then darken, people will criticize you and then praise you, support you and then oppose you. Through it all, continue to make the choice to act and you’ll make progress in all that you do no matter what.
