|The Law of Navigation. We all know it but how many of us practice it?
In John C. Maxwell’s The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, he uses the example of explorers Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott. Both were experienced explorers who decided to search out the South Pole.
Amundsen took the time to plan out their excursion paying attention to having the right people, equipment and a good map. Scott, in trying to beat Amundsen, headed out without thinking through the effects of weather and locations of supply depots along the way. Scott’s team all perished before returning from their destination.
Great leaders think through to their final destination and map a route before heading out. In the business world, you might call this a business plan!
Remember The Law of Navigation. Failing to plan is planning to fail.
Make it a great day!
P.S. What am I thankful for today? I’m thankful for accountants. I’m thankful for lawyers. I’m thankful for cinnamon!
What are you thankful for today?
