    The importance of showing up

    No amount of talent, intelligence, enthusiasm, or "anointing" will compensate for not showing up.

    On the other hand, regularly showing up will take care of all the rest. Being there conquers all things.

    It may be a necessary condition, but it is hardly sufficient.

    Think about the legions of public high school students who graduate with a 3rd grade education. Maybe I meant 3rd rate education. Take your pick.

    Yes, it is not sufficient, although I wouldn't use the word hardly. I think KL7AJ has a point. Showing up demonstrates willingness, which is normally accompanied by perseverance, responsibility and reliability. All of them extremely important to any potential employer.

    Surprisingly there are people who show up for opportunities under the mistaken impression that a body temperature of 98.6 ° is all that is required. This is especially true for public sector jobs and political appointments.

    I have never won a lottery that I did not buy a ticket for.
