“By Failing to Prepare, You are preparing to Fail” ~Ben Franklin
Ben Franklin is a beloved figure in American history. He was a man of many talents. He also reached the top of American politics through hard work and planning. Here he makes a clear case for planning before we jump into any sort of action. Our actions and resources deployed would fail to achieve their outcome if we don’t know how we are going to be executing our plan.
Preparing is a step that comes right after the initial planning exercise is finished. Preparing is about gathering your resources, putting all your ducks in a row, clarify your timelines, get clarity on the process before we really get going on full speed. This helps speed up the execution process once it begins.
