This is more of a TIP in many respects, but either way I like this “TIP” actually, it takes me back to my childhood. When my Dad was teaching me to play pool in some rundown bar in Ohio that I don’t remember the name of any more. As we were playing pool together (yeah I was about 10 at the time) he shared this tidbit of wisdom with me, “I’d rather be lucky than good.” For the sake of my childhood memory of my Dad I will assume he was only talking about playing pool. In prepping, a little luck is always appreciated. But it better not be your plan!
Another saying I remember, “If you are going to be dumb, you better be tough.”
