When I was in the Boy Scouts a whole lotta years ago, their motto was "Be Prepared!". This is good advice for all of our endeavors.
Whatever you decide to undertake, make sure that you have armed yourself with the proper skills and equipment before undertaking the endeavor.
If you have decided you want to take the summer off and backpack through France, learning French before you go would be an excellent idea.
If you are planning on making a gift for a friend for a religious ceremony, some knowledge of the religion and their customs would be helpful. Many Asian cultures dictate that the bride wear red rather than the white to which we are accustomed. To present the bride with a white veil would be a great faux pas.
If you have decided to undertake an exercise program and haven't seen your doctor in quite a while, a physical exam is in order before you start running a marathon. I personal trainer will run you through some simple screening tests to assess your physical fitness before you embark on your program.
Whatever you decide to do, arm yourself with the appropriate weapons, Be Prepared!
