Building a large scale building takes a plan. You need the materials, know the costs, and infrastructure needed in order to bring the vision to fruition. The key word is the vision in order to see the plans through. It does not take a battle to realize that you must be prepared in order to excel; this notion carries through in all aspects of life. Preparation is the brunt work of any successful visionary, entrepreneur, bodybuilder, athlete, teacher, scientist, leader, and just about any high level operational scheme.

Preparation is the launching point.
Preparation is the first step to actualizing your vision.
