It’s a SCORCHER here in Melbourne today. Forecast of 43C (110F) and at 10 am it is already 33C (91F).
Don’t you hate it when things out of your control have a significant impact on your
plans for the day? Whether it is the air-conditioner breaking down, staff not arriving on time because of train delays or people being affected by the weather, there are some things you just can’t control!
Personally, I love the approach of “Expect the Best, but plan for the Worst.” As soon as I knew it was going to be that hot, I planned to do detailed work in the morning and easy work in the afternoon. I get I will be impacted by the heat so I will plan for it. If for some reason my air-conditioner is strong enough and my energy levels remain high, I will do more detailed work but the plan supports a “worse” outcome.
What about your business and your life? Do you have contingency plans for when things go wrong? Do you know what to do when the unexpected happens?
Life and work become far less stressful when you “Expect the Best, but plan for the Worst!”
