Leadership Series Part 1 – Do You Spend Your Day Putting Out “Fires”? (day 4)

4. Strike first: Attack any and all possible challenges BEFORE they becoming “Problems” that consume your time.

You may know the phrase from recent articles: “Stop putting your head in the sand.”

You must not wait and strike first on any and all possible challenges you see on the horizon as you pursue your pre-set goals. 90% of challenges turn into only 10% of the problems when they are addressed quickly.

You must take the mindset that this proactive approach is exactly what you are going to take every time challenges arise.

Think of clients that would appreciate a call from you BEFORE they found out from someone else that a delay or issue has occurred with what you have prepared for them. This is just a small example but I’m sure you get the point. Take the time to attack your issues before they grow. You’ll find that life will begin to follow your direction because you’ve taken a pro-active stance to your life.
