    While there is always the danger of “Analysis Paralysis”, I enjoyed your: “Chance favors the prepared mind.” – Louis Pasteur, a nineteenth-century French scientist.

    It reminds me of Gary Player’s, arguably most-famous quote: ” The more I practice, the luckier I get”. Not only a world-champion golfer, but also a world-champion businessman and entrepreneur (Golf Apparel & Course Design, Real Estate Development, Horse Stud Farming, Charity Foundations).

    I would go on to propose: Analyse, Prepare and Practice, Always with Balance!

    Thank you Zipursky Cousins for your continued inspiration!
