Wait! I didn’t plan for that!
General George Patton said, “Successful people make plans to fit the circumstances…they don’t try to fit circumstances into their plans…”
You PLANNED to get up early, get in shape, have a better sales month, be more productive at work, or work on your relationship…
& unforeseen circumstances arise & you say, “Wait! I didn’t plan for that!”
Confused & panicked, you furiously tryto fit the current circumstances into your already made plans.
& when the circumstances are unbendable, seemingly unmovable, you quit trying and revert back to your old ways.
Have a plan, but remain flexible, because circumstances will pop up- & most of it you didn’t plan for.
Make a new plan to fit the circumstances.
When I played college ball, we scripted the first 10 plays of the game…
Rarely did we roll out with 1 through 10. Field position & coverages, i.e. circumstances changed & we had to modify the plan.
Make a plan…work the plan…expect circumstances, & work a new plan to fit those new circumstances.
Stay in The Sales Life 💪
