Aly Pain talks about how finding the first domino, that one action step that sets off a chain of other positive steps, is the key to success.  Preparation is about finding that first domino and setting it up exactly with the rest so that with one touch, the entire line falls over. Maybe it is setting things out the night before, making a lunch to take to work, creating a task list the night before.  Whatever it is you need to be prepared to experience success.  Find your first domino and get preparing!
