day no. 13,948: blood, sweat and tears

Proverbs 10:5
He who gathers in summer is a prudent son,
but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame.
If you're going to sleep, the summer is the time to do it. You've already planted your crop and you're waiting for nature to do its work so that you can get to work harvesting in the fall.
If you're going to gather, the fall is the time to do it. You've got to gather the harvest now or it will be lost for the winter.
A prudent, or forward-thinking, person plans ahead and works when they don't have to in order to prepare and anticipate future needs.
"The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war."     
Begin with the end in mind. Be proactive.
Everyone bleeds in war, but few sweat in peace and those who put in the hard work when they don't have to, bleed less when sweat is required of them.
