Are you a believer in no Plan B? To be fully committed you need to cut off any crutches or possibilities of ways out? No backup!
I agree with this in that you should know what you want and go after it wholeheartedly. But I think some people get confused with the no Plan B idea, and steadfastly hold on to their plan even when it doesn't work.
The No Plan B model forgets to suggest that you need to stay flexible and adaptable.
No Plan B, burning all bridges and leaving yourself only the option to forge ahead with your ideas is fantastic as far as commitment and resolve goes. It doesn’t, however, mean that you become inflexible and unadaptable when things aren’t working. It doesn’t mean that you make one plan with one strategy and just go for it no matter what, holding on for dear life.
Always with any plan, you want to maintain an awareness of what is working and what is not working. You need to be on course correction mode 99% of the time and you need to change direction when things need to change direction.
So give it everything you’ve got, but understand that it doesn’t mean that you don’t change direction. It also doesn’t mean that you might not end up somewhere else other than what you originally planned.
Never give up on your goal but be flexible in your strategy.
There are probably many more ways to get to your goal than what you can even dream up. If you’d like help with clarity on moving closer to your goals, send me a message today or grab a free 30-min strategy session here. I’d love to help you out.
