“Preparing ourselves, getting ready for business, is a crucial part of living our potential.” #bgdtcoaching.
Regardless of our role and irrespective of the work we will have to perform, ensuring we are ready for business is a personal responsibility each of us has to accept if we are to give our all in the workplace.
We might find yesterday’s endeavours laid solid foundations for our work today. If so, we are certainly ready for business. Alternatively, we need to start the development process today to be ready for business tomorrow. In either case, preparing ourselves to be ready for business is a crucial part of living our potential.
Having everything in place, being confident all equipment has been tested and is working well, ensures all is ready for business in the opinion of some folk. Others may prefer a more relaxed approach. For these people the idea of being ready for business is irrelevant. They are never ready, although able quite comfortably to muddle through each and every moment.
Walking a middle path could be the norm for many of us. Sometimes preparing, other times taking a chance and trusting our instincts, now and then merging the two actions and creating a more rounded approach. We know what works best for us in terms of getting ready for business.
