The trick is really to deal with issues. I mean, get to the bottom of whatever is causing you grief. If you try to fool yourself and say that you have dealt with a problem when you haven’t, trust me, it will rear its ugly head repeatedly until you finally, and for the last time, deal with it.
By dealing with stuff in a timely basis, you reduce your exposure to failure. A proactive approach minimizes the risk of hazards and sets you up to have the best game of your life.
Success in the workplace is built around being consistent, reliable, and ready.
