Once you start the force of planning or implement a phase of an existing plan, fresh forces will come into play to which adjustment has to be made. Whether business starts pouring in, your staff or life partner starts to sabotage, or the economy busts –fresh forces there will be.
The good news is that this is natural. Einstein stated that force never moves in a straight line, but in a curve that eventually returns from where it came and in a higher arc, because the universe has progressed since it started.
You can count on the curve of the force returning –the key to success is counting on the new factors that occur at the higher arc level. Plan on stabilizing and harnessing these factors.
“There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at the flood leads to fortune.” ~Shakespeare
There is a stage of business informally known as flood –this is when everything starts to work and comes together –the arc of your planning returns. It can seem overwhelming because with the flood comes debris –the new factors.
You can float when you routinely plan to revisit your key business success factors and proactively stabilize them. Incorporating a holistic system of measurement and communication will help to navigate the flood and turn debris into assets.
Keep forcefully planning!
Every phase of evolution commences by being in a state of unstable force and proceeds through organization to equilibrium. Equilibrium having been achieved, no further development is possible without once more oversetting the stability and passing though a phase of contending forces. As a friend of mine once said, it is about “floating, flooding, and ever-budding”. Originally posted Love-is-the-Bottom-Line
