‘Winging it’

  • Removes the stress of preparation while instilling a bit of last-second confidence.
  • Rarely leads to success unless you have the experience to fall back on.
  • Creates the impression that you don’t care enough to put in the work.

The more you practice, the better you’ll get at winging it. But if you go in dry on any occasion, expect to fail. Luck happens to preparedness.
