If you have a task make sure you are going in prepared. If you have a tree to chop make sure your ax is sharp. Do not waste your time and effort by swining a dull ax at your tree. Take time to sharpen your ax. A little time sharpening will bring you more return for your efforts. So now ask yourself what is the "tree" you need to chop, what is the ax that will assist you in achieving your goal, and how can you sharpen yourself?
