Stick to the Plan

Many entrepreneurs and successful people talk about developing a plan, and then "working" the plan. Many successful salespeople follow a professional approach and methodology to selling ... and once the sale is made, the best salespeople stop selling! (They "work" the plan). In our everyday lives we can save ourselves a lot of heartache if we just "stick with the plan" instead of reinventing it. A classic, and very simple example would suggest that if you agree with your spouse to meet at a specific time, at a specific place then sticking to that plan will avoid confusion. If you sit in a meeting with client, a supplier, a partner and you agree to a course of action ... then changing that action unilaterally, even if your intentions are the best, can be a problem! So ... plans can be everything from the simple 'meet you at Starbucks at 5pm" to a complicated project meeting involving 250 items. The way to success however is the same ... STICK WITH THE PLAN!!! Caveat: Plans are not cast in concrete ... it is fine to revisit plans, with EVERYONE involved!!! ________________________________________________________________ Kevin Dee is CEO of Eagle (a Professional Staffing Company) Have you tried Eagle's (very cost effective) VirtualRecruiter service? ________________________________________________________________
