Rise Early, Work Hard, Strike Oil

Never underestimate the power of hard work, preparation and plain old good luck. 

J.Paul Getty, the oil magnate, coined the words in the title of this post. The first time I read this quote a smirk flashed across my face.  I wondered if Mr. Getty was having a joke on us. But the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. There’s a little bit of luck involved in success. Yes, rising early and working hard are required. That’s the price of admission.

Really knowing what you value and where you want to go is the key to recognizing and grabbing those lucky strikes.

Make some time today to clearly identify your goals.  A little forethought will help you recognize the synchronistic opportunities that await.
