Prepared: from Prea meaning “before” and parare meaning “make ready“.
To me this means readiness is the culmination of the process of preparation.
Preparation is a multi-faceted proposition inclusive of all disciplines of the subject upon which one wishes to be ready.
Preparation is the journey and ready is the destination. The only way to make the most out of preparation is to realize that readiness is a moving target.
The warrior mustn’t ever feel ready unless he is on the battlefield. If he leaves the training deck and feels ready he should evaluate his ego and mindset or at least how hard he is pushing himself.
When I leave the training deck I am taking mental inventory of the steps needed to further pursue readiness.
