This year has really thrown a wrench into so many business plans. And the pandemic continues to wreak havoc for businesses that aren’t prepared for change.

Let’s face it, things didn’t always go to plan before COVID. But we do like to create myths about the good old days, don’t we?

As situations shift, plans need to shift too.

The question is not, how can we ensure that everything goes according to plan.

The important question is, how can we make progress?

Because the truth is, that’s really what counts. Not the flawlessness of a plan perfectly executed. Rather, what counts is making headway toward your impact and income vision.

Even small steps are progress.

That’s your aim: progress, not perfection.
