This post from last week was particularly prescient, and given the past week, particularly helpful. Maybe I’m learning, after all…
I’M NOT PARANOID, just prepared. Trying to remember to think ahead, using experiences to be and get prepared. Predictability, borne out of those experiences, is a great tool and motivation for better preparation. I used to tell my mom, “hope for the best, but assume and prepare for the worst.” That’s not pessimism – that’s preparedness.
22 years ago a very smart VP at Sony Music once had some great advice, regarding preparation, telling us, “forewarned is forearmed.”
Think about it.
No sense wishing I always heeded this advice but no better time than the present.
