It’s easy to be ready for when things go well. When sales hit their target it’s easy to make payroll and take care of the other bills.
The challenge is to be prepared for when things don’t go well.
Benjamin Disraeli once said “I am prepared for the worst, but hope for the best”. Too often organizations prepare as if everything will be perfect and when that doesn’t happen, they are completely unprepared.
Prepare for the worst and you any surprises will be good ones.
Have a great day!
