Planning Ahead

Planning ahead is part of being a leader. Without it, we fall into place we never thought of and makes the process that much more difficult to accomplish. John C. Maxwell’s book on “21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” he states anyone can steer a ship, but can they steer it through the rough waters? Looking at this I think planning ahead puts your team at lower risk of failure. The example of how the author portrays a two men leading their crew down to Antarctica. One prepared as ever while the other not so prepares. Obviously looking at this both the leader and his men successfully reached their. Unfortunately for the other crew, most of its members hardly made it. They got there of course, but results were frostbite, death, and starvation leaving their food on route.
So what so we learn from this? Planning ahead is part of the leadership process. If you have a team and want to accomplish a certain goal, we must build the blue print in order to succeed the results. Lets not forget also, with less risk involved as well.
