Yes, very true. I find in my life that also means getting rid of stuff that holds me back, as in over commitments. That way I am prepared and ready when something important comes along.

Warren Buffet is full of sayings and good advice and I would say he usually knows what he is talking about. I like this one.

Pat MacKenzie said...

How true. You might also add that mocking the ark builder doesn't stop the rain from falling.

Kim said...

A few more days of rain here and I might need an Ark!

Now, that is good food for thought!! And, so very true! You can talk about it all day long, but until you do something about it... well, you know... Hugs and blessings ~ tanna

Ann said...

Short, sweet and excellent point. I think I need to go work on building my ark
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Does the ark have a stateroom with a big bed and heated mattress pad?

In light of people living along the Mississippi River, I shouldn't complain, but the rain and cold can stop here in MI anytime now. One should not need the furnace in mid-May!
