If you are late and cannot find your trousers in the mess you have made of your wardrobe, most likely you will be even more late.
If your pipeline dried up and you need a few more deals to close the year, most likely you will close the year short.
If you have many employees leaving because your culture is toxic, most likely a couple of new benefits will not reverse the trend.
The point is, when shit hits the fan, it’s late to make changes. Not “too late”, because you can still organize your wardrobe before the next appointment, or start building pipeline for the next year. But still late for whatever it is you want to achieve now.
That’s why systems are so important. They support you (and others around you) when things don’t go according to plans.
And things rarely go according to plans.
