One of the mental games I play when I’m doing something new or dangerous, like riding the motorcycle, is ask what if?
What if that car decides to slam on his brakes and turn?
How would I react?
Where would I go?
Constantly asking myself what if not only helps me prepare a game plan in case the worst happens, but it also keep my mind ready to react to new situations.
What if I get sick?
How would my business continue to run?
Who would I contact to handle client tasks?
There's been a lot of this happening with businesses around the world, and the companies that asked what if more often and faster were the ones able to adapt better and quicker than their competition.
What if everything closes down and we lose most of our business?
What if our supplier is unable to meet our production needs?
What if one of my employees gets sick?
Asking what if too late means being reactive, instead of proactive.
Take the proactive approach, especially in this last quarter of 2020, and ask questions about the foundation of your business. Figure out where the weak spots are, if any, and build a plan to improve them. You’ll be ahead of the game.
