This is a new weekly installment to the world famous Soldier Systems Industry Daily featuring words of wisdom from an Alias Training & Security Services affiliated instructor. The instructors will be on a rotation every week.
“Good luck is for novices, bad luck is for everyone. Bank on skill, you control it.”
I leave nothing to chance and I train on worst case and least likely possibilities more than is common. I assume any “luck” I experience will be “bad luck” and I want to be prepared for any possibility. In my operational employment in SOF and later as a security contractor people would often say “good luck” before some event that could have adverse or catastrophic results. I would nearly always respond “thanks but I hope luck has nothing to do with it. Luck breaks both ways.
