If you prepare yourself…

“If you prepare yourself at every point as well as you can…you will be able to grasp opportunity for broader experience when it appears.”  –Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt is someone I admire greatly.  She is a well spoken woman for the day and age she lived in.  This particular quote I take to heart.

My real job is a business consultant in the healthcare industry and there are times I have hit the bench (or am not working on a project) and am not getting paid.  When I interview for a position/project, I usually get the job because I am as prepared as I can be for the job. So usually, the opportunity arises, I get the job and in theory, I think it’s because I am so prepped for the interview.

What are your thoughts?
