Have it happen
One has difficulty doing things when the event is not planned. Oh, right! We can just go along with the flow and hope things pan out right. But for the fastidious, the slightest chance of an error creeping into the equation is abominable. For most businesses, the plan works the way forward to success.
Cats can be kings, in their own time. When one considers the amount of planning needed to arrange a party for the kids, the very thought of failure due to the incompetence of another is sickening but, in many cases, unavoidable. Or is it?
Plan B in hand
Take the case of the ordinary businessman. He plans his activity and most of the events are arranged well. But Does he have a contingency plan? Does plan B go into operation soon as plan A fails? If the furniture supplier fails to kick through with the chairs, will plan B show an alternate place to seat the kids?
Check your options
Reliable suppliers abound; one must look for them. They provide alternate scenarios if the original plan of action fails. To use it, you must be aware of the circumstances when the plan is failing. When the fish is not biting in my part of the lake, I move either upstream or downstream. This ensures a good catch all the time. However, if your net gets torn and the fish begin to escape through the hole, what do you do?
Change is needed
The second net scenario is not always on the cards. So is mending the net. So, what to do now? We go play ball! One need not be stuck on one event alone when it cannot be done. One merely alters the schedule. But, this may not be possible with all events. Only when you pass time in leisure activity, you can change the schedule as you please.
In fact, over 80% of the successful business people abandon things that have become stuck. It is like the water flowing down the street. It goes around the obstacles but does not wait.
Final call on the matter
However, most things depend a lot on luck. And luck happens when your social circle has plenty of forward thinking people.
So, please don’t rain on my picnic!
