In this episode, Andy shows us the importance of preparedness, especially for events that could cause a significant impact on our businesses and in life. He discusses that sometimes, we use the terms like ‘unprecedented’ or ‘out of our control’ as a dismissive way of saying that we're actually not prepared.


So, listen in and learn how to prepare for the “known unknowns” that will save you from facing even larger complications as a result.


“We Use These Terms Like ‘unprecedented’ Or ‘out Of Our Control’ As A Dismissive Way Of Saying That We're Not Prepared.”

“Nearsightedness And Focusing On Short-Term Timeframes Excludes Events That Are Cyclical Over Long Periods. This Can Trigger Dramatic Reaction To Events And Grandiose Delusions That Were The First To Encounter This Experience.”

“Having Solid Plans For Catastrophic Events Must Be In Place Prior To Those Events Occurring.”

“Even Though There's A Low Likelihood Of These Events Occurring, There Has To Be The Same Responsibility, And Drive To Prepare For Events That Have A High Cost As Much As The Drive To Prepare For Events That Have A High Gain.”
