Predict the future
You may or may not have a good sense of humor but your dog has. Dogs also have a sense of time. They know the difference between an hour and six. It is scientifically proven; they can predict future events too. Not when Jupiter will complete its revolution but they can predict their lunch and dinner time. They know when their master will take them for a long walk. They predict by considering the daily actions and behavior of their master.
Have you ever predicted the next step of the organization and it came true? Have you ever predicted the upcoming actions of your fellow mates? Do you predict the outcome of your certain actions and it happens just like that? Can you predict the upcoming ups and downs towards your goal?
Well, we should not stress about the future much but we must predict. Prediction gives us a hint of various incidents that can happen in our life. We become familiar with most of the incidents in advance. When we are damn sure of a certain thing, happening at a certain time, we become prepared with all our weapons. Our early preparation helps us to perform well, ultimately helping us to create a better outcome. Prediction is also aware of the upcoming challenges and problems. It helps us to find the hidden potential of our squad.
In the same way, a leader needs to predict the future of his fellows. You should predict their future actions based on their performance and past actions. You must know what they can do in the future. How far their mind can reach and how it will influence the organizational goal, should be very clear to a leader.
You are wholly and solely responsible for the completion of the task. Keep in mind, any certain incident can disrupt the flow. Once the flow is broken, every big organization finds it tough to come back. It may take your blood to bounce back. So, it’s better to predict the best and the worst and work according to it. The prediction may take time but it will not take as much time as we need to bounce back to our previous form.
So, the next time you come across an unfamiliar incident, predict its outcomes, both positive and negative, and be ready with your first aid box. Work according to your assumptions and enjoy the shit.
