If you want to prepare yourself so that you can help your team as it faces the challenges ahead, then think about the following:
1. Assessment: Where are you and your team heading? What will conditions be along the way? What price will you have to pay to get there?
2. Alignment: Golf has taught us a valuable lesson: Even if you know where you want to go, if you're not lined up right, you'll never get to your desired destination. That's true of personal preparation as well as for golf. Good alignment makes success possible.
3. Attitude: To succeed in any endeavour, you need to do your homework to take care of the mental aspects of your game. You need to have a positive attitude about yourself, your teammates, and your situation.
4. Action: Being prepared means being ready to take that first step when the time comes. Remember this: Courage has no greater ally than preparation, and fear has no greater enemy.
