This year, the Boston area is celebrating a New England Patriot Super Bowl Victory. I do have to admit I was pulling for the Atlanta Falcons to win their first Super Bowl. I was very confident they would do it, but right before halftime said, “This might end up being the greatest come-back in Super Bowl history.” I said it half-hearted, but I did realize that the combination of the greatest head coach and greatest quarterback of all time were not finished.
Bill Belichick is an excellent game planner. You give him 2 weeks and will put together a winning plan. He sticks with the plan, maybe making an adjustment here and another one there. But he always seems to come out on top. He has the right people, doing specifically the things he has planned.
Tom Brady is an excellent quarterback. He not only has the talent and skills to win, he has the poise to lead others to the ultimate goal.
What can business owners learn from this? Planning is key. When you put time into planning the success of your business, you can handle anything that comes your way. When you have the right people doing the right jobs, you can get past anything and succeed.
Congratulations to the whole Patriots organization. You have a sustained plan for success.
