Life can seem capricious. Some days you get up and nothing feels or goes quite right. The car takes a minute longer to start, causing visions of an unexpected repair bill. The dog escaped during the night and totaled the neighbor's lawn...again. I could continue, but I won't. You get the idea. On another occasion, you find that you're walking in the footsteps of King Midas; everything you touch becomes golden.
It may seem that there is no pattern to the positive and negatives that fill our lives, but that's not the case.
If you take a moment and reflect, you'll remember eating that extra slice of turkey and watching that last half-hour of television. You went to sleep later than usual and you're out of balance. The other incidents just add to the burden. On the other hand on your good day you prepared the presentation weeks before it was due and practiced until you knew what you would say as naturally as breathing.
Preparation keeps the appearance of caprice at bay.
