Being flexible matters.
A friend once told me that, “a plan is nothing more than an agreed upon starting point for future changes.”
Very few things go as planned, natural disasters happen, markets shift, the boss gets a new idea of how things should be done, kids get sick – you name it.
The ability to adjust and still perform is key.
It doesn’t mean you don’t get frustrated, it just means you get over it and get it done.
