Ranting on the table


Ok. It didn’t go your way. Stuff happens.

If it was your fault, learn the lesson and make sure you do better next time.  Improve the brief, choose better partners, pay more attention, prepare properly, work the problems, delegate effectively, collaborate with suppliers, triangulate. Whatever it takes to improve the odds when the stars align again.

If there was nothing you could have done, take it on the chin, put it down to experience and move on.

Either way … moaning about it won’t help.

The morning after the night before – you can stand on a table ranting, or you can get on with the things that make a difference.

Skippy strategy: Win or lose, the next thing is always more important than the last thing. Reorganise and move on.
