Being prepared is critical to the determination of the outcome. Some of us are great at being the “two-minute quarterback.” The issues that arise out of putting things off are failure, last-second obstacles and loss of credibility.
Even when we show up victorious in the final hour, people will tend to have concern and stress around counting on us, thus forcing others to be prepared for our unpreparedness. To some extent, this behavior equals irresponsibility at its height. If we intend to act responsibly and have others view us as reliable, we must make preparations for success.
Are you ready?
