Exit Route - Make Your Choice!

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Greetings everyone and welcome back to another episode of Plan B's success. Today's episode is about out exit routes and choices that we make when we have to choose an exit row. Let me give you a scenario. John is on his way to his office. One morning. He gets on a three lane interstate in another two miles. He would need to take the exit toward his office. He notices that the right most lean is cordoned off a very long way since there's some kind of construction activity going on in that particular lane in that particular section of the interstate the other two lanes to the left seem congested with all the outflow in traffic now the inner lane is moving slowly while the outer lane is somewhat floyd if you were John. What would you do in this situation. Since it's only two miles to your exit you could stick to the inner land and drift with the traffic until you reach your exit between your exit and where you currently are is an intermediate exit that has incoming traffic flowing onto the interstate which could be the reason for the condition and slow moving traffic. It might take a little longer not sure how long but you will get your exit eventually. Perhaps the safest option in this congested in the state that you're in another option is to watch for an opportunity and get on the outer lane which has traffic moving a bit more fluidly you you would need to be alert and cautious as you move through the slain and eventually shift to the right lane when you get closer to your exit you need to be watchful of finding that opportunity and space between the trail of vehicles on your right in time to not move award too soon to get stuck in the slow moving lane and not too late to miss your exit at the same time you need to be careful of not causing an accident in this already congested traffic that you're in the midst of now. Why am I going through this. You might ask about something as simple as driving on interstate which we tend to do subconsciously every single day this simple task in in fact translates into something as profound as managing your own career or even your own business. It's amazing how closely loosley our day to day lives reflect lessons that can be applied to our actions in Ken Russell's larger than ourselves and our daily lives in everything. Can you do read the being on the job and seeking to be successful at it or pursuing success in a project not often enterprise that you have set up risk is a very integral part what determines this level of your success is the amount of risk you take and come away managing it successfully and skillfully in the example given about John has the less risky option of just being in the Inner Lynn following the traffic to reach his exit while he watches to maintain his distance between the way in the front and in the back but the pace as of movement is totally dependent on the traffic in that particular Lynn he has no control on that he'd need has control on the traffic in Ada has control on the pace in that Lynn. If the traffic sits for an hour before he inches towards his exit that is what it's GonNa be and he has to deal with it on the other Iran. If we take some risk by getting into the outer lane lie he asked to watch out for the weights in the front and the rear as he maintains his position him and most along he also needs to be watchful of the traffic in his right blame to judge where he is in relation to his oncoming exit he needs to make the correct correct judgment about moving into traffic in the right land entering too soon or too late would defeat his purpose although there is little risk and the need for being more good in the second option and in fact it also requires more skill to manure the option it would be the ideal one for John if his goal is to reach his exit sooner than later the time saved by not being stuck in the traffic might be but needs some quick decisions decisions and deft execution by John to make it possible of course there are unknown risks one of which is an accident upfront which which could slow down the outer lane to in such cases. John would need to look for other options or go with the one that works best in that particular situation similarly in our lives and in everything that we do in our careers as employees or as businessmen are entrepreneurs. There are options. You need to determine what the end goal is and based on that make assessment of what path to choose to get there in the most skillful fashion the the most efficient fashion in the right time risk is inevitable in everything you do you can take the risk averse option but be prepared to not be in control control and do not expect much to happen. Are you can decide to take more calculated risk which will required some ingenuity and exertion on your part but it will ensure that you have great success. What kind of person are you the one who takes the million and let's the traffic determined when when you reach your exit or the one who gets on the adventure of the outer lane and mix it happened one pulsating with excitement of controlling your journey into your exit does another story that I wanted to share with you today as well no today. September fifties what we call the teacher's Day back in India India and I ended up calling an old friend his six-year-old son picked up the phone and we chatted for a few minutes now. This kid was animated about an even at home from from a few days ago and started relating to me. His grandfather was fellow sedated by a group of people who came from different places.
