Planning amidst uncertain times

Well, we’re diving into the last of the strangest year most of us have ever lived. Although there is still a lot of uncertainty about the early part of next year, there are still some planning and goals that need to be addressed.

Hi folks. Steve Hammond here from HorselessRanch.com.

The easiest thing to do would be to ignore goal planning due to uncertainties. The truth is the future is always uncertain, maybe just a little more uncertain at the current moment.

I challenge you to think through what you would like to accomplish next year. Take a look at any five or ten year plans you already made. Yeah, they didn’t see this year coming, did they?

Make your adjustments and plan for doing something new or creating something new. For example, I speak for a living. Many folks have learned how to pivot to virtual events, training seminars, and annual meetings. Doing so requires a little retraining, some new equipment, and a willingness to adjust the way in which connecting with audiences happens. However, it can be done and is being done by many.

Here's the crazy thing. Once you learn how to connect with a virtual audience, the lack of travel can actually increase the number of events possible and eliminate the travel cost in time and money.

What in your world could actually turn out to be to your advantage? Remember the old saying. “It is an ill wind indeed which blows no good.”

Even with times like these there are those who will lean into the future and thrive. Will that be you?

Well, that’s it for today.

If you need help your next virtual or live event, call, text, or email me. Let’s see if we can resolve the situation together.
