One’s sparring partner is supposed to sharpen your skills and prepare you for the actual event. Whether it was the sparring partner which enhanced your skills, or the event itself which prepares you for the next one, is a debatable issue. Is it possible that the sparring itself teaches you bad habits — especially if your sparring partner possesses greater skills than you do? Is a sparring partner a “partner” if he actually beats you in preparation for the event for which you are preparing?
Proper preparation in any endeavor is the key to success; yet, the anomaly is that, it is the event itself, in whatever form, which is the truest way of preparing for the next event; and that is where “experience” counts, no matter the sparring partner or any other methodology of preparation embraced.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that the need to begin preparing an effective Federal Disability Retirement application under FERS becomes evident, the key to the whole thing is to get together with an expert “sparring partner” — an attorney who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law.
There is no substitute, in the end, for experience and preparation; and in order to prepare, formulate and file an effective Federal Disability Retirement application with OPM, you need to contact the best sparring partner available — an experienced Federal Disability Retirement Lawyer.
