Ever wake up one morning and say to yourself:
“Jeepers self, I should walk the mooses before the sun rises!”
If so, I highly recommend waiting for light to emerge (a perfectly logical reaction for the extra hour of sleep we’re getting tonight thanks to daylight savings time!)
But I digress.
So there I was, happily walking the meece when all of a sudden…
The muscles in my legs decided to tell me, “yo! We’re going to get weak right now, hope it doesn’t affect you much.”
The next instant resulted in me falling backwards gracefully (I was on a hilly incline in a foresty place) and landing on my back, staring at the tree tops.
Pretty treetops, I must admit.
And the few minutes spent on said back, contemplating the mysteries of life (which included how I was going to stand up again), made me realize….
It makes perfect sense to prepare for future weaknesses your *business* might encounter.
(your body too, of course).
Prices are rising (in services as well)… and if your business depends upon inventory, it might make sense to search for backup providers should your primary suppliers weaken in their delivery to you (logistics, pricing, etc.).
Heck, you might have to re-invent your business entirely in the coming year!
But the thing to remember with all of the above…
Life hands you the cards… it’s up to you to see how to deal them in a way that both benefits and profits… you.
So what can you do?
Look up ways to either patch up short-term issues, or completely grow in a new direction for long-term issues.
Because quite honestly… nobody else will proactiveize… for you.
