You hear that a lot in South Florida every hurricane season. It, like most slogans and sound bites, is meant for people with simple minds and simple plans. Since “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry”poem & translation, real-life planners and leaders need to do more than just hope. They should routinely have backup plans allowing for success as well as initial failure, and they regularly update those plans as situations unfold.
With that in mind, we just applied for enough art festivals to finish up the season, even as we contemplate the need to cancel another festival next week (this morning’s surgery went pretty well, but it’s too early to know how long the recovery will take). Stay tuned.
