If an opportunity comes along and you've not prepared for it, you'll fail

Found an article that I'd printed out from last month but never got around to posting here.

It was about new Redskins head coach Jim Zorn, a guy I really admired when he was an NFL QB with the Seahawks 25 years or so ago.

The article tells how, as QB coach last season in Seattle, Coach Zorn was typing up a practice outline when his wife walked by and saw he'd typed "HEAD COACH" across the top of the page.

Surprised, his wife asked him about it. His response:

"Well if I don't prepare and then I get the opportunity, I'll fail."
