Day 48 #POVChallenge

Lesson of the day…
.
Today I was having a meeting with @seanwwhalen discussing our plan of attack for the next 60 days and he said something that absolutely stuck with me.
.
He said… “You have 2 choices when the storms coming. You either prepare for it, or you pretend it’s not going to effect you.”
.
Most people in business would see the supply chain issues, rise in ad costs, rise in COGS, shipping delays, and inventory shortages…
.
And they’ll simply push it to the back of their mind, and forget about it…
.
They’ll cross their fingers and just “hope” someone else will figure it out so they have zero need to stress over it and everything will be rainbows and butterflies again.
.
OR…
.
You can prepare ahead of time by creating solutions to all these problems, be ahead of the game, and never have to rely on hoping things get better.
.
I’ve been reckless in business before, and I can tell you the chaos takes a toll on you physically, emotionally, and financially.
.
But this time around… playing the game 10 steps ahead of everyone else, takes all that stress off.
.
Ya we might over-buy inventory.
.
Ya we might hire one too many employees too early.
.
.
Ya we might be preparing for something that never happens…
.
But guess what…
.
WHEN that storm comes…
.
It’s going to hit with a force like you’ve never seen before.
.
And we’ll be THRIVING during it.
.
While others are simply just trying to survive it.
.
Hope is not a plan of action. Get your house in order.
