“Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans” – John Lennon
Sometimes life, and business in particular throw you a curve ball and problems arise that derail your plans.
This morning I had one of those problems when we had a pretty major problem on Legiit.
How you respond in situations like this is what will separate the successful from the unsuccessful.
What I like to do is quickly accept that whatever has happened… has happened.
There’s not a lot of value in analyzing the “Why” until later.
So accept it, then figure out what has to happen to get it resolved.
This sounds straight forward but a lot of people struggle with it… they will get upset and let their emotions control them, and make poor decisions.
That at best doesn’t help, and could in fact exacerbate the problem.
So when business catches on fire, accept it, stay calm, figure out what you have to do to fix the problem, get it done… then do a postmortem to see what you can do to prevent it in the future.
How do you deal with business crises when they arise?
Talk to you tomorrow.
