Bill Hartman on Daily Contingency Plans / by Muhammad Amir Ayub

Bill Hartman on always having contingency plans for everything in life (here he gave examples to deal with getting good food/eating too much food/a lack of gym access/a lack of gym time):

I can assure you with relative confidence that today will not go as planned.

Someone will interrupt your productive time. You’ll get distracted from your task at hand. Your work will take longer than expected. Someone else will be using the piece of equipment that you need at the gym. You’ll forget your prepacked lunch.


The key is to have your contingencies ready to implement when they are necessary. It is the consistency over the long-term that will ultimately bring you success.

Get out your notebook and start planning your contingencies. Today may not go exactly as planned.
