‘Hard thinking will make for softer work, than if you never thought at all.’
Abraham Lincoln taught us that if you are to chop a tree down with an axe, you should spend the bulk of your time sharpening the axe first and foremost, before you ever attempt to make the initial cut. People swinging blunt axes amounts to one thing: frustration. So sharpen your mind through stimulated thinking time, as you read and listen to material presented by mentors in your chosen field of study. Devote yourself to a lifetime of study, so that you are always at the peak of your knowledge and wisdom, ever ready to act, and ever able to lead.
