From the wisdom of Jocko Willinck.
Being prepared is doing the hard work up front.
There are NO shortcuts. What prepares you to succeed is the months and years of constant effort to prepare. Build up your skills, hone them, repeat them, make them second nature.
What prepares you for a challenge is never the few minutes before where you visualise and repeat positive affirmations and listen to inspiring music. No.
Its the daily discipline, preparing yourself for the challenge. Discipline and training .. Being Prepared.
Being prepared is the opposite of winging it. However while winging it is never the first choice, there can be an element of being prepared so that you are better able to wing something.
When I talk about hacks, they are not intended to be on-off tricks that can be implemented on the spot ad-hoc. They need to be practiced, taken on board, ingrained, internalised.
Practice. Be prepared. Do the work to reap the rewards. Success is built long before the challenge is overcome.
