Kinda hard to believe that the video truck power would 'go out' during the broadcast of the World Series being played in Kansas City this evening, but it did.
I wonder who dropped that ball?
The reality is that life happens and we better have a back up plan for our back up plan!
Reading a new book by Robert Dickie III called 'The Leap' and he is throwing strikes about how to build back up plans in life. He is audacious enough to suggest that we all need a 'Super Fund' that amounts to a full year of salary -- NOW that's a back up plan!
I've learned the power of back up plans the hard way when I was under-prepared and lost great opportunities to shine because I didn't work hard enough to have a back up for the back up.
If you truly wanna understand the power and necessity of having a back up plan I'd encourage you to read Jim Collins' 'Great By Choice' and learn the legendary story of Amundson and Scott and their race to the South Pole. It's a call to action for leaders to take care of their teams by having a super reserve and planning for everything to fail.
As a leader we've been given a Holy trust to take care of the people on our teams and we do that when we have a back up for the back.
Fox Sports needs to read this post!! LOL
All the Best, Jeff Fuson
p.s. Truly Great Leaders Make are master planner and they know what 'true success' is for their team. Let me give you 'The True Success System' when it rolls out soon.
