Start Working On Your Very Own Plan B

Start Working On Plan B

I had a plan for today that included doing some prospecting for 2011, meeting a client for a sales skills training class and having lunch with a networking buddy and great friend.

A good plan, a pretty mellow plan for the day after the Christmas holiday weekend.

But nature got in the way and my plan was foiled by a blizzard that stopped business as usual.

Everything on my agenda got cancelled or switched about and now it’s on to Plan B.

I didn’t have Plan B when I started the morning but I have one now and it seems like a good one.

And that’s what this is all about…having a Plan B. Sometimes things don’t go as expected. You don’t win the project, an existing client bails or your best employee goes to a competitor. All problematic events I grant you, but still events from which you can surely recover…but only if and when you develop and start to work your very own Plan B.

So make sure that you have that all important fallback position, Plan B, when Plan A falls apart. Don’t sit and bemoan what has happened, get going and start working on the alternatives and maybe, just maybe Plan B will turn out to be a better proposition that you ever thought.
