Two seemingly unrelated verses that are very much related…
Ecclesiastes 9:11 (NLT)
I have observed something else in this world of ours. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise are often poor, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being at the right place at the right time.
Ecclesiastes 11:4 (NLT)
If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.
