Fire, Ready, Aim

There are occasions in life where you need to plan.

Starting a business. Buying a house. Making a big investment. You don't want to go into those without proper planning. 

Otherwise, you might be looking at a huge mess for years to come.

When organizations do things like spending millions of dollars on a building they don't need, I jokingly call it, "Fire, ready, aim."

But, there are some occasions where "Fire, ready, aim" can come in handy. Like starting a new project. Or even beginning music lessons.

We've had a number of students over the years take a trial lesson, love it, and then delay starting. Because they want to wait until they are "ready." Whatever that means for them.

But then, we never hear from them again. Almost 100% of the time.

When it comes to low-risk project starting, a "fire, ready, aim" mentality can come in handy.

But with high-risk projects, yes, take your time. Create a strategy.

And when high-risk starts to feel like low-risk because you've planned so well, then you can make your move.
