Life is unpredictable, you never know what each day holds.

Many years ago, my Sensei taught me to expect the unexpected. That has served me well over the years. Any time I forgot this there always seemed to be a hard lesson to refresh my memory.

He also taught me a simple strategy for fighting: set up a pattern, then break it suddenly.

Don’t let your moves become predictable.

The same thing applies to life, you see pattern being repeated day after day and live it on “auto pilot”.

If you are always expecting each day to be the same, you will be totally off guard when something radically different happens.

If someone attacks you, you can’t say, “Wait while I warm up, then we’ll fight.” It is happeningĀ  whether you are ready or not.

Josh Bryant talks about being “gas station ready” and that’s good advice.

Training and testing are greatly influenced by your state of mind. The power of the mind is incredible!

Like I posted a while ago, “Stay ready and you won’t have to get ready.”
