Ready(?) Steady(?) Go(?)

'By Failing to Prepare, You Are Preparing to Fail'
(Benjamin Franklin)

Yes, as tough as it may sound, we all know it's true. And we all know that high-performance never happens overnight. It's the result of constant, great effort.

The question is, HOW do we prepare?
How do we know what the best tools are for us to 'get ready', 'get in shape', 'get fit' for high-performance?

It's one of the reasons why athletes (and most other high-performers) have coaches: so they learn the specific techniques that are best fit for them and which can best prepare them for the kind of high-performance they need.

And now the additional question: how do we prepare - ourselves, our teams, our businesses - for the future, when the present is constantly changing?

I have one answer to this: creativity and innovation.
They're one answer because they go together everywhere.
  • These two will help us imagine and create a future that we can constantly adapt to our reality.
  • These two will help us become genuinely diverse and inclusive.
  • These two will help us see past our assumptions and biases.
  • It's these two that will help us continue to come up with creative solutions.
And if you're now raising your eyebrows in disbelief, think about it this way: it's creativity and innovation that have helped us survive in the midst of a global pandemic.
That have helped us help one another, communicate, motivate ourselves, encourage others, have a sense of connection and purpose and, most of all, keep hoping and imagining a different kind of future.
One that we're possibly going to be proud of!
