Business is full of ups, downs, turns, and twists. Sometimes the “fires” are burning and every ounce of energy you and your team has goes towards using the fire hose.
There isn’t really any way to avoid the emergencies of business. No matter how hard you try they will still come.
You can’t control if they come but here is what you can control:
-Putting systems in place to minimize fires
-Structure your time to be flexible so that you can work on the fires that come up
-Not fight fires alone
-Trust companies and people who have your best-interest at heart
-Bring your best self to the table, even when emotions are intense
Prevention is powerful and I highly recommend it but sometimes you need a good fire hose. Sometimes you may even need to call the fire department.
