I was watching a boxing telecast. One of the announcers was former heavyweight champion George Foreman. George said that boxing great Archie Moore told him " Plan your work , work your plan".
These words for me been the basis of how I have tried to live me life. Plan my work work my plan. Doesn't mean I can't "let go and let God" or make adjustments along the way but that folk wisdom of Archie Moore makes great sense to me.
