Quick Tip

The best laid plans

I had it all planned out...

I did my prep work.

Double-checked to make sure I had everything with me. Left with plenty of time to get to my destination.

And then BOOM!

Halfway to my destination, my front-right tire blows out.

Luckily, it happened close to an exit, so I got off the highway.

And began my ~3hr wait as my tow truck was scheduled, was late, didn't show, canceled, found another...

Eventually made it home safe and sound with only my ego bruised from feeling like I made a bad impression with a new client.

We're getting into planning season and I know a lot of people don't like to plan anymore.

Because plans often do go as - well - planned.

But that doesn't mean the process of creating a plan is important.

We just need to be ready to adjust and adapt when things don't go according to plan.

As boxing trainer Cus D' Amato said, "Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face."

It's what we do after that punch that makes the difference.
