Will You Be Successful in Your Business When Something Goes Awry?

The importance of creating and writing up your mission and vision statements for your business are critical. The regular visitation of your goals and plans to achieve these goals with timelines are what keeps you and your team on track.

There are times, especially when you are really busy, successful, constantly working, fighting fires and providing your clients with your best, that one may be tempted to push to the side the regular review of the goals and planning process. In actual fact, this is the most important time to review where you are and where you intend to go.

An excellent example is to be prepared for when the unexpected takes place and the wrong items or actions begin to take place. These may be caused from within such as technical issues, personnel or a problem from the outside such as a client incident, a personal relationship gone badly or an industry distress situation.

It is for these reasons that your goals and your plans need to be reviewed on a regular basis. What if cases discussed and considered. Potentially a few “Plan B” scenarios are created ‘just in case’. It is this exact process which actually will prepare you and those involved to be able to quickly react if and when something goes awry.

When you are faced with adversity in your business you correct your course. No one has ever taken their business directly in a straight line from start up to a business success story. Some may speak about it taking place that way. It does not happen this way though – Ever. It is a zigzag path to success.

It is through the regular review process that you become alerted to something which is just not right, it is off center. This will then permit you to put into place the course corrections needed to continue toward the ultimate goals.

  1. Your comment about business not being a straight path to success is both true and wise. I’m a big believer in consistently evaluating one’s biz, Great content, Mitch.

  2. Regular review of goals and plans is essential. Going through a majore review right now. Always important to have a crystal clear vision to aim for, otherwise, you’ll just wander aimlessly. XO, Katherine

      Even if not crystal clear, at least aiming for a defined purpose and goal. Then making certain this is the right path and you are still on it.
