plan b

I’ve been out of commission lately due to a series of unfortunate events. Thankfully, all of the situations are curable.

Having so many things go wrong in such a short time span made me think about what I do to keep things running smoothly, even when the circumstances are challenging.

Do you have alternate arrangements so that your work and personal lives can continue when things aren’t going well? Would someone know how to pay your bills, take care of your home or family if you weren’t around?

Take a few minutes today to make a list of everything that needs to be done on a regular basis. For the next few days, spend five to ten minutes fleshing out the list with details and put the document in a folder labeled “In Case of Emergency” or “In My Absence” or something that makes sense to you.

Be prepared. Have a backup plan in place.
