Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.  (Seneca, 1st century philosopher)

“Good luck” is what we say to someone who’s beginning a competition or starting a new venture. We mean well, of course, and we recognize that the person we’re wishing to have success has spent a lot of time in preparation and practice. And now, the right time has come about, and they’re ready to go. The key is not luck but careful planning and preparing.

Do your planning and prepare your fields before building your house. (Proverbs 24:27)
